This is great news and all but also aggravating since not very long ago a perfectly intact historic building on Forest Park Ave (?Brauer building) was demolished by CORTEX claiming Techshop needed a newly configured space.
Fast forward a couple years :TechShop is gone and so is another heritage brick building :cry:
^Yep. RIP Brauer Supply Building.

My fiance and I are very excited for it to open up after it relocates... we're hoping to tinker with some ideas to start our own business and Techshop closed at the worst possible time.
Excellent another link in the chain between the Loop and CWE, another decade and it will be a continuous developed corridor... decade seems like a long time doesn't it?
