Wicker Park - Published Saturday April 19, 2013 Mystery has always surrounded the space of the long vacant Palm Terrace Banquets located at 1250 N. Milwaukee Avenue.

In the 1930's a portion of the building located at 1246 N. Milwaukee Avenue was home to a jeweler as show in this photo courtesy of WBEZ:















And the building was vacant for a number of years after Palm Terrace closed up shop almost 15 years ago. Recently, the commercial space has been filled with a new store primarily focused on Nike footwear called Stash.

The bank owned building was bought by local businessman Tony Kim last year and plans may be in the works to rent the space as lofts.

Wow. We can't wait to see the whole building when it's finished. Another amazing discovery and historic little treasure in Wicker Park.
