Infamous Wrigleyville liquor store bites the dust for new development

The Wrigleyville Gold Crown Liquors at 3425 North Clark Street and two storefront bars have been recently torn down to make way for new development. A demo permit was issued for the three story vintage building to the far right of the photo as well. All Photos Eric Rojas, Broker, Kale Realty
Drinks, drinking establishments and liquor stores are synonymous with Wrigelyville. Well, you can pour one out today. I noticed the much loved and hated Gold Crown Liquors at Clark and Sheffield has been torn down. Drawings for the new building coming to the corner are linked HERE.

I snapped this photo this morning of the former Gold Crown Liquors store in Wrigleyville.  Much has changed in the neighborhood due to the Rickett's Chicago Cubs ownership and the CTA Red Line/ Purple Line "Belmont Bypass" project. See the renderings of a new building HERE
My twenty-one year old self will have to find a new place to rent kegs. Few Chicago neighborhoods have transformed faster over the past five years than Lakeview's Wrigleyville!
