Lake View Hardware Store to Build Up

You can build a lot of things with the supplies found in your neighborhood Ace hardware store.  But a seven-story residential building might cause inventory problems.

Say farewell to the Ace Hardware at the corner of Sheridan and Dakin in Lake View.  The owner of the building has bigger plans for this space.  We’re talking 120 apartments over ground floor retail space.  But DIY-ers need not fret.  In the diagrams filed with the city, there is a tiny “Ace Hardware” logo pictured on the retail space; so bigger, better things may be ahead for those of you who like to swing a hammer.
