Bicycle Parking Coming to the Arts District

The Glenwood Ave Arts District is getting an unexpected bonus out of the renovations at the Morse Ave. CTA station.   At the Lunt (north) end of the station, the decrepit store building is being demolished to make way for bicycle parking.

Alderman Joe Moore writes about working with the CTA to find a constructive use for the space after it was determined that the building was in untenable condition and insufficient funds existed for its reconstruction.  According to Ald. Moore, the CTA intended to simply fence in the dead space.
