Children’s Learning Place is headed to Boystown, signing a 15-year lease at the former Brompton Body Shop, Chicago Real Estate Daily is reporting.
The more than 12,000-square-foot building at 3532 N. Halsted St. was once eyed by West Hollywood’s most famous nightclub The Abbey, with developers hoping to open a second location in Chicago.
However, after being confronted with extremely high cleanup costs to deal with environmental hazards left behind from the former business, the group momentarily backed away.
Now Children’s Learning Place is planning to invest about $1.5 million to remodel the piece of prime real estate, CRED writes. The school will be open to 140 children with plans to open fall of 2014.
Chicago Learning Place has locations in Logan Square, Bucktown and Streeterville.
