Vicious Cycle

Meanwhile, the storefront next to Hannah Bea’s, formerly home to Vicious Cycle, sits empty a couple of years after VC headed to Interstate. A 2007 article in the Tribune notes this about Vicious Cycle owner Raschel Barton’s experience of owning a shop on MLK:

Vicious Cycle paid $7,000 for a zoning variance in its last location on Northeast Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard, after Barton learned from city officials that the old BMW repair shop she leased had been zoned residential.

Pretty stiff, especially since it wasn’t as though people were demanding to be able to build residential properties on MLK some years ago.
