CHICAGO — If the George Lucas planned museum is built along the lakefront, 1500 tailgating spots in the parking lot south of Soldier Field would be scattered to other locations.
A proposed parking garage west of Lake Shore Drive would accommodate those vehicles.
However, the Chicago Tribune reports only 386 spaces on the top deck of the five-story garage would be available for tailgating.
As part of an agreement between the Chicago Bears and the Chicago Park District, four other locations around the stadium would be set-aside for tailgaters.
But the Lucas Museum remains in limbo because of a federal suit by Friends of the Parks to try and stop the project from being built on city-owned park property.
