The property’s owner is filed under Lawrence Warshaw. While it is unknown what Warshaw plans for the site, the parcel is zoned for B3-3, meaning large shopping and retail buildings with apartments above the ground floor.

Bus access includes a four-minute walk south to Diversey & Southport, which is serviced by the 76 Bus. Access for Route 9 can be found via a six-minute walk west to Ashland & Wellington. Belmont & Greenview is an eight-minute walk northwest and serviced by Route 77. Both Route 9 and X9 service the Ashland & Belmont/Lincoln stop, a 10-minute walk northwest.

Access to the CTA L can be found for the Brown and Purple Lines at Wellington station, a 12-minute walk east. Additional access for those two lines as well as the Red Line can be found to the north at Belmont station, a 17-minute walk northeast.

DS Construction is listed as the wrecking contractor. A full timeline of the demolition or replacing structure is not currently known.
