New Construction On Kenmore?
In May 2008, Uptown Update reported that demolition had begun on the Christopher House pre-school location at 4303 N Kenmore. The property had been sold in 2007 to a developer, who planned to build a condo building on the double lot there.
The demolition left a lot of rubble, which rhymes with housing bubble, which was bursting just about at that time, and to no one's great surprise, the lot has stood empty for over five years while developers try to find their footing again.
An astute neighbor of the property noticed that there's been some construction equipment on the lot this week, and that's probably an indication of something going up at some point on the vacant space. He says, "I don't know what's planned for there as I couldn't find anything online. I guess the real estate recovery is underway. Most probably a six-eight unit building given the lot size. Condo? Apartments? The pics look similar to the earlier pics. I hope it turns out better this time."
So do we.
