Hi! I own Sine Qua Non which is in the vintage building that used to be The Easterly. We have restored the vintage beams as best we could and lofted out the ceiling to reveal them. It is an absolute vintage gem and I am concerned out landlord will sell as a tear down in a few years. Oh Chicago, why is there no historic preservation??

Does anyone know what if anything is left of the auditorium as it still appears to be intact. On the Racine side there is a cleanng store built into the rear of the auditorium.

Another one I’ll have to check out this week. The very corner space used to have a consignment antique store called The Time Well as a tenant. I think the rent increased, and then they had no tenant for years.
It was an art gallery for a brief time too.
It is an interesting building, as you can see clear through the space to Racine from Lincoln Ave. I helped a buddy fabricate the dental sign across the street on Racine back in 1989 or `90.

Architect appears to be Clarence Hatzfeld of the firm Hatzfeld & Knox, according to the American Terra Cotta index. Original owner Emil J. Dirks.

Currently Sine Qua Non Salon. This would be an interesting theater to study because of the way it wraps to fit the corner lot.
