Could one of the more prominent, large and empty buildings on South Michigan be getting some rennovation activity? According to city records (via Everyblock) it looks like it could:
Wow, this is surprising!
Last we heard this piece of land was being auctioned off. That was just over two years ago!
The building has become more and more dilapidated since then and we were starting to think it would simply have to be torn down -- whenever someone cared enough about the land.
Judging from this permit, it seems like it will become a multi-use office, residential and retail space.
Hopefully this actually happens. It's a good looking building on a pretty ugly stretch of Michigan Avenue right now. Rennovating this building would go a long way to improving the streetscape.
Anyone have any other details on this?
