The commercial space currently occupied by Bar Louie restaurant, 1122 Lake St., is on the rental market, according to a listing on the website of the real estate group Mid-America Urban.

The listing notes that the space where Bar Louie has been located since 2006 is not the only commercial condo available in the so-called Eleven 20 Club building. Four other ground-floor suites, all of which are vacant, also are on the rental market.

The Fitness Formula Clubs-Oak Park, located at 1114 Lake St., is the only commercial unit in the building that is unavailable, according to the listing.

Bar Louie is still open for business, but it is unclear for how long. Neither a spokesman for Mid-America Urban nor Bar Louie could immediately be reached for comment.

The listing identifies the Bar Louie space as a 5,987-square-foot unit, nearly 1,000 larger than the adjacent commercial space to the east, where Mattress Firm formerly was located. That space is listed at 5,020 square feet.

Another vacant commercial space to the east of the former mattress shop, which formerly housed Bruegger's Bagels, is listed at 2,227 square feet. To the east of that space is a vacant 1,289-square-foot commercial space that most recently housed a sales office for the Emerson development. The final vacant ground-floor commercial space, located on the alley north of Bar Louie, is 1,720 square feet.

Combined the storefronts make up 16,243 square feet of commercial property in downtown Oak Park.

The listing notes that the owner of the building would consider combining spaces for interested buyers.
