DePaul Looks To Expand

By Marcus Gilmer in News on Jun 23, 2009 9:40PM

DePaul University is looking to expand and has brought its plan to the neighborhood for approval. Chi-Town Daily news reports DePaul has designs on a 10-year development plan which would include a big complex at Fullerton and Sheffield. And now the Sheffield Neighborhood Association will hold its final meeting on the expansion tonight (7pm in the McGowan Science Building). Ted Wrobleski, the SNA's planning chairman, told the CTDN, “Basically one of the concerns is the size of the new buildings, how tall they’re going to be and how that would fit into the character of the neighborhood." But Wrobleski also said that the association and DePaul have a good relationship and there's not much opposition to the plan.
