Surely you’ve passed this building at 14th & Illinois… and wondered what it was in its past life. In this instance, its future life is of equal interest. Formerly home to the Fame Laundry Company and built in 1929–check out a fantastic Bass Company photo from that year.
The address is/ was 1352-54-56-58 North Illinois
There has been interest in redeveloping this space into some sort of retail/ dwelling space, but remediation of the land and condition of the building may make it cost prohibitive. Having been a laundry/ dry cleaning facility, there are issues of soil contamination.
This could be a gorgeous property again…
