Vintage commercial building gets re-do at Halsted and Diversey (and a look at nearby condo sales)

The weathered building at 800 West Diversey looks to be getting a gut renovation
We've had a lot of business lately around the corner of Halsted and Diversey where Lakeview meets Lincoln Park.  This commercial building at 800 West Diversey is yet another commercial building in the area getting a renovation, or in many cases, a complete tear down and redevelopment.

The building was/ is home to Diversey Dental and other medical offices.  I don't know if those businesses remain (email if you know).  My wife use to have a doctor on the second floor and we both used the dentists office for a few visits (years and years ago) before we had some issues and switched. Both those offices were WAY dated and beat up 10 years ago. 

2852 N Halsted, Chicago IL 60657 will be redeveloped into high end condo buildings with ground floor retail.
 My wife's doctor moved to newer, nicer digs around the corner on 2825 N Halsted. That building and parking lot is now being re-developed as well.
