Next month will mark 10 years since the E2 nightclub tragedy. The building on 23rd and S. Michigan which housed that club has been vacant since that day.
Suzanne Weaver who owns the gallery next door says for the first five years people would turn up with tributes and memorials but she hasn’t seen anyone stop by for at least the last few years.
The area has been showing some growth potential but investors haven’t been willing to take on the project with a sale price of $2.4 million.
Weaver says, “I think enough time has gone by that something can replace the old club. It will offer some rejuvenation for the whole area.”
