CHICAGO – August 8, 2023 – Bradford Allen Investment Advisors (BAIA) today announced it has closed on the purchase of The Henry, a mixed-use property at 4346 N. Honore St. in Chicago’s Ravenswood neighborhood.

John Butler, executive managing director, and Danielle Morse, senior managing director, negotiated the purchase on behalf of new ownership. The seller of the property was represented by Tyler Hague and Lauren Stoliar of Colliers.

Common resident amenities in the pet-friendly building include an indoor/outdoor rooftop lounge and terrace with built-in grills, a lobby lounge and bike storage room.
