Home Depot 1

Newer Older

Daytime photo, Home Depot "urban format" on Halsted in Lincoln Park. Yes, it's two full stories (a first for the chain) and 85,000 sq ft., with some liner retail; garden is in the front, quick hardware purchases (screwdrivers, light bulbs) on one, and more involved items (paint, faucets) on two. Two levels of parking sit on the roof, behind the signage.

The neighbors initially opposed a proposal to build residences here, so the developer's Plan B was this. It's terribly out of scale (almost 60' tall and 80,000 sf in a three-story neighborhood), but is successful enough to warrant more.

Developer: JDL Development (Jim Letchinger)

    Isn't there an entrance ramp to a parking garage, or am I making that up? In any event, I'll take this over the one at North & the River any day.

    As much as I hate to shop at big boxes (staff never seem to know where anything is), this Home Depot was done very well. I wish more were designed this way.

    @TouringCyclist: The new one in the South Loop has the typical suburban design (including the obnoxious tower with the logo on it) except for its parking lot, which is on the roof.

    I can't believe I'm saying this, but this is a gorgeous big box building!
