Openlands cheers the Cubs on their historic World Series win. It was a thrilling game and a hard-earned victory!
In 2012 (only 104 years into the Cubs’ now-ended championship drought) Openlands partnered with the Cubs and Alderman Thomas M. Tunney on a new park in Lakeview. Openlands purchased the property at 1230 W. School St., which at the time featured nothing but an unused warehouse. The property was transferred to the Chicago Park District to become the half-acre Margaret Donahue Park, honoring the long-time Cubs employee who worked her way up from secretary to vice president of the Cubs. Donahue was the first woman to hold that position in Major League Baseball.
Like the Cubs, Openlands takes the long view. We understand that dreams take time, lots of effort, and strong partnerships.
Thank you, Cubs, World Series Champions!
