851 W Belmont Ave.


Chicago, IL


Given the foot traffic in the Clark and Belmont intersection and increasing demand for retail space on Belmont Avenue, BlitzLake saw an opportunity to invest in the Lakeview Community and purchased the Tokyo Rose’s “Toguri” Building at 851 W Belmont in April 2013.

Fully leased prior to completion of BlitzLake’s gut-rehab, the building was converted so that its 2 floors with lofted ceilings plus full basement were useable in a first-class manner.  Since completion, the space has been occupied by The Annoyance Theater, Lakeview Smiles Dental Clinic and I Dream of Falafel.
