City reports signed purchase agreement of Eagles Club building


The Tecumseh Downtown Development Authority met Thursday, Nov. 12, and the board received updates on several projects throughout the city.

Tecumseh Economic Development Director Paula Holtz announced the former Fraternal Order of Eagles building, 125 S. Evans St. has a signed purchase agreement from Dan Meikle.

Meikle owns two buildings downtown and recently completed renovations above 101 E. Chicago Blvd. creating several apartments.

“We’re waiting for all the dots to connect and hopefully it will happen in December,” said Meikle. He added that he has ideas for the property, but did not want to comment on specifics.

The property was listed with Foundation Reality with a price of $75,000. Details of the sale were not disclosed at the meeting.

Work on the properties recently purchased by the city from The Hamblin Company at the corner of Pearl Street and South Evans Street and the property north of Long Motor Sales is ongoing. Removed was a clay tennis court, which was filled and seeded, and a barbed-wire fencing.

Holtz said Friday, Nov. 13, an ad hoc committee has been formed to discuss how the property should be reused. She added the next project is to remove trip hazards and old foundations from the property on the west side of Chicago Boulevard. 

Salsaria’s has announced on its Facebook page last week it is planning to open in the coming weeks. Holtz said the Mexican restaurant should be open by the end of the year.
