The shopping center in the 2100 block of Green Bay Road in Evanston that houses a Walgreens drug store and the local Social Security office has been purchased by the developer who brought Trader Joe’s to Evanston.
The center, constructed in the 1990s by Roger Parris of Manchester Realty, who died last year.
His widow Kathleen recently sold it to a pair of limited liability companies managed in part by Scott Gendell, whose Wilmette-based Terraco Inc. developed the Trader Joe’s store on Chicago Avenue after the city pitched in to provide parking for the store.
Terraco then sold the Trader Joe’s building a month after the store opened.
Terraco also developed the new Walgreens store just across the Evanston border at 4009 Old Orchard Rd. in Skokie.
