Here’s a view from last week of the former Express Wheel & Tire kiosk in Oak Forest,Â in the midst of its transformation into a yet-to-be-identified coffee drive-thru along Ella Blvd. at W. 34th St., at the eastern end of the shopping center redo Revive Development is working on at that intersection’sÂ southwest corner.Â Demo crews are removing theÂ overhang connecting the front canopy to the small building behind it. Renderings of the finished development on the Revive website show the canopy is meant toÂ remain — to shadeÂ a few prime parking spaces at the eastern end of the development:
The site plan, however,Â shows the canopyÂ coveringÂ what appears to be a streetfront patioÂ carved out of the greenery facing Ella (at right) in front of the new 500-sq.-ft. coffee shop:
