The Cubs have paid $20 million for a one acre parcel of land across from Wrigley Field. The purpose: to use it, eventually, for “a mixed use entertainment” project. Which is term you hear a lot on real estate circles, but which I always equate with “arcade/go-karts” because people my age once thought of that as the height of entertainment.
For now, though, the site holds a McDonalds, which will continue to operate. This has led to a conspiracy theory in some circles.
I’d say that was low-hanging fruit, but I can’t remember the last time I saw fruit anywhere near a McDonalds or near Wrigley Field.
