A large parking garage in Oak Park will soon be demo'd to make way for a new 21 story tower at the corner of Lake Street and Forest Avenue. The concrete 340-space parking garage will officially close on August 4, and demo equipment will arrive at the site a month later. According to information found on the Village of Oak Park website, the construction of the new tower is expected to take a total of 18 months to complete. The $94 million tower will include 270 apartment units, 25,000 square feet of ground level retail and 588 parking spaces. The town known for its classic Prairie style home and Frank Lloyd Wright designs will soon has a tall tower to look up to.
