Marcus & Millichap is pleased to present the property located at 3900 W Columbus Avenue in Chicago, Illinois. The sites are located two blocks west of the Pulaski/87th Street/Southwest Highway Interchange. The property for sale spans three separate sites (nine PINs) along Columbus Avenue and will be sold all together. The ownership will not be breaking the property apart.


Bluebird Lanes, a bowling alley currently occupies the sole building on the parcel. They are now on a month-to-month lease that will either provide income while a new owner is getting their entitlements for a new development, or a tenant if they should decide to keep the bowling alley on the premises. According to the alderman’s office, the bowling alley site is zoned residential. The parcels bordered by Springfield and Columbus are zoned B3-1 and the last parcel facing Columbus are zone M1-1.


There is an appetite for new development in the area and our belief is that this is a redevelopment project. The owners have purposely left the lease on a month to month basis for the flexibility of a new owner.
