There is worry that the people who own the buildings outside of Wrigley Field may sue to block the Cubs’ major renovation plans, but maybe that worry is to much. Paul Sullivan of the Tribune reports that the Cubs met with the rooftop folks today to share their renovation plans, and at least some of them sound pretty optimistic and conciliatory about it all.
It’s all about dough. This is a business relationship, not a philosophical debate. I’d be shocked if it wasn’t resolved in fairly short order. Those rooftop folks have an awful lot to gain by a renovated Wrigley, even if a few of them lose some sightlines.
