Wicker Wire: Many know the space at 1514 N. Milwaukee Avenue (the corner of Milwaukee Avenue and Honore) as the movie location for High Fidelity's fictional record store  "Championship Vinyl". The then-empty store was transformed into a studio set that acted as the primary location for the 2000 film and was owned by John Cusack's character Rob Gordon.

After filming the storefront remained empty until 2008 when it was boarded up.

This week DNAInfo is reporting that the commercial storefront was sold to a Newcastle-limited venture called House Music LLC on February 7, 2014 for $1.4 million dollars. The property above the commercial space is condos.

The corner space is 3,000 square feet with exposed brick and 13 foot ceilings. No word yet on possible tenants. We will keep you posted.
