In addition to the purchase price, the village has also invested about $67,000 in mold mitigation and roof repairs on the building, 24018 W. Lockport St. The building was constructed as a Unitarian church in 1868, going on to become the first home of St. Mary Immaculate Parish before being converted into a restaurant in the 1970s.
The site was home to Baci Italian restaurant for 20 years before the eatery closed in 2010.
The building was purchased by Darryl Sams, who plans to open a Creole-inspired, white-tablecloth steak and seafood restaurant. Village Planner Michael Garrigan said Sams plans to open by Thanksgiving after completing some restoration work and ADA improvements on the building.
Also on Monday, trustees signed off on a liquor license for the recently opened Capri Sogno restaurant, housed in the former Finnegan's Pub location at 24102 W. Lockport St.
Trustee Garrett Peck was absent.
