In the SoPo rumor-ville, the building could be leased (or in the process of being leased) by The Boka Restaurant Group as a new restaurant.
It was originally marketed “Fully fixtured with renovated ground floor” but we know the entire interior has been demolished, including the floors.
On myelisting.com, it currently reads, “Located on the Northeast corner of North Southport Avenue & West Henderson Street. Space is conveniently located one block south of the Southport Brown Line ‘L’ stop (1.12M annual riders) and features a hard corner dominant presence at the gateway to dynamic Southport Corridor.”
We have reached out to BOKA and are awaiting a response, so more to come.
