Logan Square condo construction dwarfs Table, Donkey and Stick

Many argue with much reason that one story buildings near transit and commercial hubs lack needed density (I agree).  So, why do photos like this make me hate these condo buildings?? Units in 2724 W Armitage (shown to the right) sold for $439,000 to $555,000 in 2016. All photos Eric Rojas, Broker at Kale Realty
We see this from time to time.  A "hold out" property squeezed between new construction buildings.  Sometimes residential, sometimes commercial... always intriguing! We often root for these holdouts... kind of like this guy too.  In this case the Table, Donkey and Stick restaurant occupies the one story, single lot building (opened circa 2013)It has survived new construction condos to the east completed in 2016 and a near completed building to the west.

Sold condos in 2724 W Armitage shown to the east of Table, Donkey and Stick closed for $439,000 to $555,000A large 59 unit building at 2701 W Armitage is in development across the street consolidating the Armitage and Fairfield intersection with residential units. A large loft condo building across Fairfield from this development has existed for many years.

The attractive industrial building (pictured at this link) has been demolished and a construction permit issued for a large rental building at 2701 W Armitage.  
Logan Square along arterial streets Milwaukee and Armitage continues to grow in popularity. Many similar multi-unit developments as 2701 W Armitage have popped up in the last few years alone and rent or sell quickly. Located just a few blocks west of the CTA Western Avenue Blue Line this location is an easy walk to many trendy restaurants and bars.  The strip connects to Bucktown and Wicker Park via walking or bike on The 606 and quick bus rides.
