Pending: 83 W. Chippewa Under Contract

The long-vacant building at 83 W. Chippewa Street is under contract and the buyer is planning a significant investment in upgrades to the property.

“The buyer is planning on putting a restaurant or store front on main floor and apartments above,” said listing agent Suzanne Tomasello. “We hope to get construction started in November.”

The property has been for sale since at least 2014 and is owned by 83 West Chippewa Inc. Many of you will remember this as a porn video store, the last vestige of Chippewa’s seedier days. From the 2014 listing:
