Rehab of Two-Family, Vacant for Two Decades, Progressing in Botanical Heights

The rehab of a two-family home located at 4327-31 McRee in the Botanical Heights area is progressing nicely. The home is under conversion into a single family by developer UIC, who has redeveloped adjacent blocks in what is known as the Botanical Grove development. The home had previously been recorded as vacant since 1993.

Below is a recent photograph of the rehab:


Not long ago, the structure had broken windows and was boarded up (see the Google Streetview capture below).


This rehab project is located just west of UIC’s bold contemporary infill single family home at 4313 McRee. See the photograph below showing the two contrasting structures next to one another:


Just a few years ago, the circa-2011 Google Streetview image of the same view proves that a lot of progress has been made:
