Above is a crappy cell phone photo of the aforealluded to building next door in my Milwaukee Mysteries post.
Thanks to Michael Horne of the excellent MilwaukeeWorld for finding out this tidbit for me:
#1 Permit 816273 has been taken out on 802 N. Van Buren by owner Radovan Stojanovich for repairs. There is no record of a violation or enforcement letter.Horne also identified #4 as Milwaukee Water Works. (What a gorgeous building though, wouldn't you agree?) He also dug up this about Saylece's: Saylece's is owned by Cary M McCoy of Jaycee Investments, and has a license that will expire in Feb, 2010. Still not quite sure what that is, and it's still a shame that the Commons closed.
Thanks for the feedback everyone, I think I'll keep the mysteries a'comin!
