Photo update: Huge Old Town apartment development at former Marcello's location

Looking east down West North Avenue
216 units are under construction at North and Larrabee in Old Town. The development goes up on the former Father and Son Plaza at 609-657 West North Avenue... also former home of Marcello's Father and Son Restaurant. I went to the restaurant often for industry breakfast events. The new development address is 633 West North Avenue, Chicago IL 60610

The Village Garden Express building (former Terry's Red Hots) somehow remains along North Larrabee and the tracks.
A small restaurant building and parking lot remain on the Larrabee side.  
This is that development you see heading downtown on the CTA Brown Line.

View from across the street.
West North Avenue from about North Wells to North Halsted will be adding around 406 finished residential condo and apartment units in a year's time to this Old Town/ Lincoln Park area. The larger developments are the "Father and Son Plaza", 301 West North, 750 West North Avenue and 1550 on the Park . This doesn't count any small developments north and south of North Avenue.

1550 N Wells at West North Avenue across the street from Latin School is adding 32 luxury condo units to Old Town.
