WEST LOOP — Showing strong opposition to a planned 13-story apartment tower, West
Loop neighbors had a simple message for Ald. Walter Burnett Jr.: “Just say no.”
Waving signs and chanting, more than 300 residents packed an auditorium at Merit School of Music Wednesday night to fight LG Development’s controversial plan to develop a 13-story apartment building at 111 S. Peoria St. The site near Mary Bartelme Park now houses a parking lot.
“Ald. Burnett, the only thing we want you to do is just say ‘no,'” resident Sam Tenenbaum said at the meeting.
