First Ward Alderman and Mayoral Candidate David Jacobson has purchased the DeKalb Clinic main building property today at auction for approximately $100,000. Zoned Central Business District, Jacobson has not yet decided his final plans for the 38,000 square foot building and approximately 80 parking spots.
“I have been a huge proponent of the need for private investment in the downtown revitalization effort. What better way to show my commitment than to get involved as a downtown business owner myself. To me, it’s the perfect example of practicing what you preach” said Jacobson.
Still undecided as to his plans for the building, McMahon stated, “The Lincoln Inn will stay where it is and stay open. I have been a downtown business person for the past 20 years and I believe the downtown is a great place to do business. For the price I paid for the property I know I can make some business work there, create jobs and pay taxes. I’m excited about this opportunity.”
