Buy a piece of nostalgia and own a slice of history! This is your chance to revive this auto repair shop or create a new use for this historically significant structure in Northwest Evanston. The easily accessible corner location is perfect for a restaurant, theater space, dance or yoga studio, daycare / preschool, office space or many other uses - especially with so much outdoor space for parking and/or tables! This quaint 2500 square foot Carl A. Petersen design is located within the vibrant Central Street Business District Special Service Area where your establishment can be part of a lively community of residents and small businesses that offer the wistful charm of days of yore with a 4th of July parade that passes right by, street festivals, live music and sidewalk sales. Many thriving surrounding businesses. The building itself was originally a Pure Oil gas station built in 1938 with its distinctive "English cottage" characteristics of the company's brand seen in many of their other structures that still exist today: white brick-face Tudor Revival style, a sharply pitched roof topped with blue shingles and gable end chimneys. The goal of the standardized design was to present a safe, clean, and welcoming place and to identify the Pure Oil brand to consumers. As a result, the building's design has been considered symbolic of the cultural changes which occurred with the huge growth of the automobile in the early 20th century, and the impact the auto had on the lives of Americans. Easily accessible from the 94 Expressway and Green Bay Road. At the corner of Hurd and Central - the possibilities are endless. Please note: all underground fuel tanks have ben removed.
