Two Homes in Old McRee Town Getting Rehab Treatment

Two Homes in Old McRee Town Getting Rehab Treatment

Two adjacent single-family homes in old McRee Town, now Botanical Heights, are under rehab. The first is 4259 Lafayette, under a $55,000 rehab. It has been vacant since at least 2008. The second is its neighbor to the west, 4261 Lafayette, getting rehabbed for $50,000, also vacant since 2008. The owner of 4259 is shown to be 1st American Real Estate Company; the owner of 4261 is the Garden District Commission.

Below is a recent photograph focused on 4259 Lafayette (4261 Lafayette is partially visible to the left, or west).

The 4200 block of Lafayette may be enjoying a rehab boom thanks to all of the work taking place in the adjacent 4200 block of McRee (one block to the north), where UIC has been building several new homes and rehabbing still more as a part of its Botanical Grove development.
