Lake View Sports Authority closing, changes ahead for Clark, Barry, Halsted intersection

The Sports Authority is closing all of its stores.  The Lake View location and parking garage at 3134 N Clark St, Chicago, IL 60657 occupies a large corner parcel at busy North Clark and West Barry intersection.  Photo taken Monday 6/6/16  Bob DePalma, Eric Rojas Brokers, Kale Realty
Everyone has been going to this Lake View Sports Authority FOREVER.  At least that has been the sentiment from my friends and clients from Lake View to Lincoln Square.  I know I have been going for over 15 years.  There is very little alternative for a brick and mortal general sports store on the North Side... if you don't head way northwest in the city or down town.  Specialty stores dot the area but this has always been the default.

There is a huge mess of re-development along most of the major arteries of  Lake View and Lincoln Park.  North Ashalnd, North Lincoln, North Clark, North Halsted... large retail parcels, hospitals and even condo buildings are being re-developed.  This location should attract a lot of interest.
