While I was working on a story rumors that 5801 N. Greenwood – once an auto showroom – was originally a movie theater, I started to think a lot about expectations of architecture. One of the theories behind the stories is that the building looks almost too grand to be just a garage, but Edgewater and Uptown are full of epic historic garages. So here’s a few examples: 5801 vs some buildings that used to be movie theaters and then vs some other auto showrooms/garages.
