Photos! Ravenswood Station update, Mariano's almost open

Scott Bloom, neighbor and  President of Winnemac Park Advisory Council (and friend to many) updates us on Ravenswood Station.  The large scale and high profile retail and residential development is about open for business at LA Fitness and Mariano's Fresh and tenants soon (at Ravenswood Terrace apartments).  The new Sears Auto Center is open for business.

All photos, Scott Bloom, Architect
The development has made a striking change to the West Lawrence street scape at North Ravenswood Ave near the renovated Metra station
Rare springlike temperatures gave me a chance to check out the progress of the new commercial development at Ravenswood Station.

The Sears Auto Center is open. Although I have yet to see any new Yelp reviews.
 I bet right now it is the cleanest auto service center in all of Chicago.

There is a surface parking lot in the rear of the lot. The Ravenswood Terrace 
apartment complex under construction can be seen at the far end of the surface lot.

 The  main entrance to the fitness center is oriented to the surface lot.
Notice the permeable pavers used at the parking spots. Nice touch.

There is pedestrian access  at the far north edge of the lot. 
Pedestrians can walk down the alley and head out to Ainsle St.
