This offering is actually 6 separate and adjacent parcels in an unbelievable location. The north end of the parcels reach Lake St. just across the street from the Evanston High School. Greenwood on the south end of the parcels is a block north of Dempster and a few blocks north of Main St. Used for years by a family construction company, there are currently several short term leases by various businesses from car repair, to trucking, to landscapers to movers. There is ample room for the countless autos, trucks and construction vehicles currently parked there. The seller is adding new ones as they come in. But the opportunity to build something really terrific on this site is what makes it so special, because so little undeveloped land of this size comes on the market in central Evanston. There are storage facilities going down the block on the other side of Greenwood and a sleek showroom of high end performance cars right across the street, but on Dodge and Brown, the leafy streets that border east and west of this site, there is housing ranging from neat single families to townhomes to rentals. The seller commissioned a Phase I Environmental Site Assessment for the parcels in February of 2023 which is available to interested parties as is the current rent roll. In Additional Information, there is a breakdown of each parcel with individual drawings with dimensions, land use, taxes and PIN numbers. The current Evanston online zoning map identifies all of 6 parcels as R-4. In our attachment culled from another site, you will see that 4 of the parcels' Land Use is listed as Industrial (General) and 2 of the parcels' Land Use is described as Vacant Land (General). Currently is there one long building that has spaces being used for car repair and construction, with rolling garage doors opening into the gated parking area. Some of it has working air conditioning and all of it has some heat. There are some bathrooms, office spaces and a small kitchen. There are other structures that have roofs but are open to the elements on the sides. There is fencing all around the site. The site is not a conventional rectangle to which we are accustomed here in the Midwest. However, it could be a terrific place to build something unique and interesting with space for parking as well. A small section of the land reaches 1000 Lake St which is directly across from the High School which might make this site a great location for a youth centered health care facility or a business which caters to that population or their parents. The land is there. You get to bring your vision.
