Chatham Center Chicago launch

[VIDEO] Wednesday was the day of the official launch of the Chatham Center Chicago. The video above from WBBM-TV you will see many Chatham business owners, the people in charge of Chatham Center, and 6th ward Ald. Roderick Sawyer who talked about Chatham having good bones. With this event held at Chatham's Studio Movie Grill, this was a great presentation by the Greater Chatham Initiative to help get target markets to come to our community to shop & eat.

I also learned listening to the many speakers that the Chatham Center Chicago team got some help from Downtown Hyde Park. Wonderful things have been happening in Hyde Park and the commercial areas have looked much better in recent years especially along Lake Park, Hyde Park Blvd, and 57th Street.

I suppose in a way Chatham is getting "Hyde Parked". In the meanwhile, how many people are excited to see this move forward and where it goes.

BTW, here's another video from WLS-TV who was also there to mark the launch of Chatham Center. And more of the speech Ald. Sawyer gave to mark this occasion.
