While there are a lot of important numbers to consider when analyzing this former synagogue turned attractive lakefront parcel in the north burbs — 4 acres and $7 million listing come to mind — the most important may just be 367 — as in, 367 feet of prime lake frontage. While options are open, and brokers for @properties have said the lot would be an ideal space for institutional construction, it's hard for minds not to drift towards something more grandiose. Congregation B'nai Torah has been shut down since last summer, but any potential buyer would still need to get the city and zoning board on their side before they could call 2789 Oak Street home.
The four-building site includes a former synagogue and a relatively new 12,500 square foot education center that was financed with $6 million of debt through a municipal bond sale, a key reason B'nai Torah closed its doors. While there are plenty of institutional within the four homes, there are also stunning lake views throughout the compound.
