Yesterday, the Cubs and the city of Chicago finally finished hammering out their deal on Wrigley Field renovations.
If approved by the Chicago Plan Commission, the Landmarks Commission and the City Council (all of whom must sign off on this), the bleachers will have 1,790 additional seats, and the Cubs will construct a building west of the ballpark on land now occupied by a parking lot and the former site of Yum Yum Donuts, which would house a 400-space parking garage, restaurant and team offices.
Construction would probably begin right after the 2005 season ends.
If you want to see detailed architectural renderings, as noted here last week, the Cubs are holding a community meeting next Tuesday, March 8, at 7 pm.
And they don't have to worry about how contentious the meeting gets. It's being held at Advocate Illinois Medical Center at 836 W. Wellington.
