The proposal on the table today, one of nine bids submitted for the 4.3-acre site, would bring a mixed-use development to the corner of Ogden Avenue and La Grange Road, including housing, retail space and parking, but no YMCA, according to the Tribune.
The property, located at 31 E. Ogden Ave., would ideally include a new facility for the YMCA, according to a news release send in July. The YMCA was seeking developers with "creative options for a mixed-use development."
For more than 10 years, the YMCA of Metro Chicago has been working with the La Grange community to develop potential sources of capital to build a new, permanent facility.
In 2006, the YMCA decided it would be more feasible to build a new facility than renovate the old building. The plans stalled because of the economy, and the building was demolished in 2010.
