1132 S. Wabash Building Gets Amazing Face-lift - Signs Point To Bar/Restaurant Be Coming?

A reader writes:
The scaffolding has been removed on Wabash. Looks nice. Note the large garage type door on left.
New 1132 S. Wabash retail space
Old 1132 S. Wabash retail space

So...this building looks 5,000,000x better than the old one...wow!  What's going into this space remains a slight mystery, but it is definitely possible that Steven, who contributed a comment to an old story was right when he said:
Will in fact be an upscale lounge/sports bar. i had posted this earlier but it was taken down for some reason....most likely due to trolling
What other type of business would like a garage door that opens to the street?

Regarding the post you made about the bar/restaurant at 1132 S. Wabash this morning:

I was walking past this place on Friday, and there was a woman out front talking to 2 contractors- directing them on some work to be done to the facade. I asked what the space was going to be, and she confirmed that it is being built out for a bar/restaurant concept, but they currently do not have a tenant for the building and are in the process of seeking out a business to occupy the space.
