With a full renovation permit now issued, Vienna Beef has kicked off a major new initiative at 2501 N Damen Avenue in Bucktown. Unofficially listed as 2409 N Elston Avenue in the permit, the $20 million redevelopment project will revamp the site the company had occupied for over 40 years before its closure in 2020. Previously, there were failed plans to replace the property with a Drive Shack driving range.
2501 N Damen Avenue
Initial details have been revealed for the upcoming renovation to the Vienna Beef Factory in 2501 N Damen Avenue in Bucktown. Located on the corner with N Elston Avenue along the Chicago River, the large structure was vacated in 2020 after a long history of production. Now Vienna Beef itself is redeveloping the property after a failed attempt to demolish it in exchange for a Drive Shack driving range.
