On the market since October, the 1931 mixed-use building at 2215 W. Lawrence Ave. has a 2,700 sq ft. of commercial space and two two-bedroom apartments at top. First listed at $595,000 in October, owner Tai Phan has since dropped the price to $524,000.
The beauty supply business on the first floor, owned by Carlos and Mayra Buenrostro, is not part of the sale.
Next door to an alley and Lincoln Square Auto Repair, Phan bought the building in 1990 for $135,000, so it seems that just about any sale price will put him ahead.
What would you like to see here? Is this the kind of location that would benefit from the planned Lawrence Ave. streetscape?
