Hirsch and Associates, LLC, a River North-based architecture, planning and design firm, announced on its Facebook page today that the former Border’s Books at the Clark, Broadway and Diversey intersection will be converted into a Walgreen’s. According to the post, the  new, two-story, Wellness Experience store, is a new concept that will be larger and have many more features than a typical Walgreen’s store. The post also said Hirsch Associates has begun the construction documents for the core and shell portion of the project. Check Hirsch and Associate’s Facebook page for more information and photos of construction as the project moves forward.
