This building in the 2800 block of N. Clark is one of Lakeview's unsolved mysteries.
Like, why have the upper three stories of apartments and/or commercial spaces not been occupied in at least 20 years? Ever since I arrived in Chicago in 1987, I've wondered why these spaces in this great-looking building have not been utilized, and I was really amazed that they weren't renovated and offered for sale or rent during the real estate craze of 2001-2006.
A friend of mine, who has owned a couple of businesses close by for many years, says that she has never been able to discover why, and neither can anyone else she knows.
Does anybody know?
