Two mixed developments downtown Oak Park, IL (warning: many photos)

3 posts in this topic

The following is a series of photos of the Lake Club building on Lake St. in downtown Oak Park. It was the redevelopment of 2 old under-developed properties in a prime commerical district. It is approximately 10 stories, with ground floor retail, second floor health club and 8 stories of residential units.

These photos are from Spring 2006 when the building was under construction:

Next is the Opera Club - another new mixed use development in downtown Oak Park, IL. It replaced a rather tired old 3 story commerical building that was once quite attractive, but had been remuddled too much over the decades:
