Good news, DIY-ers!
The difference is that Ace used to be one of several storefronts in a single-story building, and now it's at ground level of a seven-story, 120-unit TOD apartment building. The building is located a block south of Uptown's southern border, Irving Park Road, at Dakin, and is half a block from the Sheridan Red Line station.
The owner of hardware store, Joe Lomanto, is also the property owner.
There are four other storefronts available. Artemio's Bakery, a much-loved tenant of the previous building, has moved across the street to 3904 Sheridan and remains available for your baked-good needs.
