ROGERS PARK — North Siders looking for the late-night taco experience, but on a student's budget, needn't wait much longer — construction at the new Sheridan Road Taco Bell is in motion.
On Monday, the city issued a $75,000 renovation permit to Diza Hospitality Taco Properties LLC to turn the former Red Mango frozen yogurt shop at 6460 N. Sheridan Road into a Taco Bell.
The corporation is owned by Sanjeeve Khatau, who also heads other fast food franchises in Chicago, including a Dunkin' Donuts in Morgan Park.
It was announced the taco (and now breakfast) spot would be opening in the Morgan at Loyola Station complex with a 10-year lease in August.
Across the street at the Granada Center, Clarke's Diner at 6431 N. Sheridan Road is gearing up to open its doors 24 hours a day by late April or early May, Loyola representatives said.
The diner will fill a 3,200-square-foot storefront at the Granada Center just down the block from ArrivaDolce, a coffee, scones and sandwich shop set to open late May or early June.
Also at the Granada, Local Goods Chicago pop-up gift shop and Third Coast Comics recently opened as part of Loyola's new Lakeshore Community Partners initiative that seeks to re-brand the area just north of Devon Avenue as RogersEdge business district.
