New Land Proposes 21 Story Timber Tower!

New Land’s 21 Story Timber Tower Proposal at East Kilbourn Avenue and North Van Buren Street.

This is the 2nd proposal for this parcel of land which consists of a poorly maintained parking lot and a dilapidated vacant restaurant. Originally the restaurant was a garage and then it was converted into a steak joint named “The Embers” and then it became a Chicago-style pizza restaurant called “Eduardos” and now it is empty and mostly boarded up, but I suspect there are people prowling and squatting inside the building. I will be happy to see it torn down.

Here is a street level view of the property and the northeast corner of North Van Buren Street at East Juneau Avenue.

Future home of a 21 story Timber Tower?
