Before the new space at 5025 N. Clark was renovated to house the local Mexican restaurant Cantina 1910, it housed several other businesses through the years including T’s restaurant and bar. The 100-year-old building was not in good shape, but developers decided to salvage as much of the old structure as possible instead of demolishing the building and completely rebuilding.

The meticulous process of converting the building into its current form started in 2014, and took over a year to complete. The final product is a unique, modern structure ready to accommodate the right business.

According to a commercial real estate pamphlet put out by @properties and its listing agent Becca Lundstrom, the 6,700 sq. ft. property which contains three levels, is ready for the next business to take shape. There is both an option to lease the space or purchase it for $4,250,000.

According to Lundstrom, the location is a  great opportunity for a perspective business. She said, “Andersonville is one of Chicago’s most desirable neighborhoods attracting entrepreneurs and residents with its diversity, sense of community and successful businesses.  The property itself is a brand new gut rehab with first-class construction and design.

The current C1-2 zoned space contains several dining areas (including outdoor), two bars, 6 restrooms, state-of-the-art production kitchen, prep/walk in coolers/storage on the lower level, and the possibility for five parking space with a long-term agreement with the adjoining property. The space also boast a roof that can support a farm or be built out into rooftop dining with space plumbed and electrical ready for a bar buildout.

“Of course, a restaurant would make the most sense, but really any service retail could make the space work – breweries, live music venue, dinner theaters, multiple concepts combined under one roof – come to mind,” said Lundstrom.  “It’s functional and beautiful.”
