Parking, Zoning, Corruption? Oh My!
The house is part of a $4.6 million development that Burke and his partners built on a parking lot over the objections of Mayor Daley's zoning administrators.
Daley's zoning staff thought the development -- one massive, three-story house along with 13 town homes -- wasn't "compatible" with the Archer Heights neighborhood, where it would tower over the surrounding bungalows.
But Burke, the city's most powerful alderman, won permission from his colleagues on the City Council for the project anyway.
We're slashing District desk crews. What about the bloodletting that needs to occur downtown or in the Units?
