Comfort Station is a turn-of-the-century structure turned multidisciplinary arts space in the heart of Chicago’s Logan Square. Originally a shelter for trolley riders in the early 1900s, the building was eventually defunct and was used to store the city’s lawn equipment for decades. The space was adopted and restored in 2010 by Logan Square Preservation and opened as its current incarnation as a community-focused art space in 2011.
Annual Preservation Award
Each December, Logan Square Preservation presents an award to the best preservation project for that year.
Activities within LSP are organized under several standing committees. Start with the contacts here to find activities that fit your interests.
Contact the Chair – Shana Liberman
The work of the Beautification committee has the most noticeable impact — from tree planting to education and advocacy — encompassing all projects that support and improve the boulevards and the Logan Square neighborhood.
Preservation & Restoration (aka Zoning)
Contact the Co-Chairs – Kate Paris-Tsan and Bruce Anderson
The P&R committee organizes many activities to promote LSP's mission to preserve and restore the historic character and resources. Those include advocating for historic preservation at community meetings and directly to City officals.
Outreach, Events and Fundraising
Contact the Chair – Steve Isakson
Outreach includes initiatives to work with LSP members and the larger Logan Square community, organizing events and fundraising, and operating LSP's online and social media. Large events, such as the biennial Housewalk, have their own sub-committee and chairperson.
