Burton Heights

Recommended Posts

All the cool neighborhoods get their own threads, so I figure I'd start one. :-)

The "Garfield Lofts" project is going forward: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1jqAJEppSe0KRLkICvlJicWjqZK9n7us_/view . This will involve demolishing the 110-year-old former Burton UMC (100 Burton St SE) and building LIHTC apartments.

Other neighborhood news (that I don't recall being discussed elsewhere): The adult theater building on Division just south of Burton has been purchased, and is being renovated. The ugly facade has been taken off. Not sure if any tenants are lined up yet—it won't be returned to its former use.

One Bun has been operating on Division a block south of Burton for at least six months now. Very good hotdogs (including hand-dipped corn dogs), decently priced. One of the owners was a long-time Yesterdog employee.

One Bun corn dogs are fantastic.

That’s unfortunate. It’s kind of a unique design for this area. But I also get that it’s a good location and chrurches aren’t always easy to redevelop into a new use .
