Kiddie Academy building construction at old Lincoln Lanes site, Lincoln Square

The new Kiddie Academy of Chicago has taken shape at the prominent bend once occupied by Lincoln Lanes and Matty K's Hardware.  A photo I took of the old building the morning of the fire is below.

A terrible day for our neighbors and the loss of local history and a good sports bar.
Here's my post from last June with more info and photo links of the Kiddie Academy news and the Lincoln Lanes fire of 2015.

An earlier photo of the construction looking northwest down North Lincoln Avenue along the bend.
The site is adjacent to a McDonald's drive-thru. I'd hoped this whole corner home to an older McDonald's store and the vacant Lincoln Lanes lots would have been redeveloped together. In related news McDonald's projects and 300% spike in Happy Meal sales by 2020.

A McDonald's store shares a parking lot with the Kiddie Academy development.
