Historic Wicker Park Church Listed for $1.5 Million

2016 W Evergreen Ave, Chicago, IL 60622 Updated: May 17, 2013


Wicker Park- Last February we reported on this historic church which was listed for $1.5 million and sold for $1.3 million before the listing was even published. An incredible value located in Wicker Park's historic district at Damen and Evergreen, this property sold for less than land value.

According to a report published today, it appears this incredible building is going to be turned into 11 two-bedroom rentals.

Owned by real estate company, JAB, plans are to retain the architectural details and restore the character if the doors and windows if possible. If all goes well, the rental units should be available Fall 2014.




Wicker Park- February 26, 2013

This beautiful church currently located at 2016 W. Evergreen (Damen & Evergreen) was going to be listed for $1.5 million dollars. But the property sold before the listing information could even be published on the Illinois Multiple Listing Service.

An absolute steal at $1.5 million dollars, the price reflects the value of the land and doesn't take into consideration the value of the structure. In fact, on the MLS it's actually now listed as "land" for sale. So whoever bought this property in less than a day just got themselves an incredible deal -- and they know it.

The listing agent, Tom Moran, confirmed this beautiful turn-of-the-century building is located in Wicker Park's historic landmark district so the structure is protected and cannot be torn down. The new owner will need to work with the Chicago Landmarks Commission and Wicker Park Preservation Team regarding any future plans. The property is currently under contract and has not yet closed transferring ownership. So we don't know who the future the owners will be and/or what their plans are at this time.
