Curious new construction homes still remain unfinished on Edgebrook block

I noticed these two new construction homes still sitting unfinished on the 6200 block of North Lenox in Edgebrook since 2008. The several blocks of this southeast Edgebrook location is better known for unique original build homes from the 1920s through the 1960s. New construction happens but rarely side by side like this. The last sale on the lot was in 2005 for $605,000.

The only listing for the homes on the MLS appeared for 120 days in 2008 as 6232 N Lenox, Chicago IL 60646 asking 749,900.  Property records show a lis pending mechanics lien on the property.  These drawn out situations are always a shame.  We need housing (especially relatively affordable housing) to keep city neighborhoods vibrant.   

If anyone has photos of the original property that sat on the lots please send them to and I'll update the post.
