This Makes Perfect Sense
- Ald. Proco “Joe” Moreno (1st) said Tuesday he wants to turn a hulking Humboldt Park building that once housed two of the record 50 Chicago Public Schools closed by Mayor Rahm Emanuel into, among other things, a new elementary school.
Moreno wants a new school for up to 400 neighborhood students to be part of a massive, nonprofit development in the three-story behemoth of a building at 2620 W. Hirsch that once housed De Duprey and Von Humboldt elementary schools. CPS announced on Friday its intention to sell the building and two others that were shuttered in 2013, but its request for proposals didn’t mention a new school.
Someone is going to try to make a shitload of money reopening some of these places. We should have guessed.
