|2941 N Clark Street...out with the old. The 98'x125' property stretches 4 city lots.|
We were walking down Clark Street last week and noticed this conspicuous lot. The tear down at 2941 North Clark has a little history. A neighborhood guy caught me taking a photo and asked if I remembered the former night spot Deni's Den...a Greek night spot with belly dancers and all that. Apparently Deni Dimitreas was a local celebrity.
Deni bought the property for $130,000 in 1978 and sold in 1997 for $780,000. The property was sold again in 2001 for $1,450,000 and then $1,800,000 in 2003.
Development plans have been presented for the site and a final approval is in the works. The trend of large mixed use site re-development continues all around popular Lakeview.
