McMobil meeting Mon.

Hyde Park residents will meet next week to discuss the size and scale of the proposed 13-story residential and retail building proposed for the McMobil Site on 53rd Street.

The Citizens for Appropriate Retail and Residential Development will meet at 7 p.m. Monday, March 18, at Augustana Lutheran Church, 5500 S. Woodlawn Ave., to discuss what they say in a press release is a “huge 13-story high-rise” that would be “grossly out of scale with its surroundings and too far from public transportation.”

Hyde Parkers twice before successfully opposed high-rise development at the McMobil location — a Mobil gas station and the former site of a McDonalds restaurant —citing similiar complaints.
