Focus Development has purchased the almost-developed Sienna project at Clark Street, Oak Avenue, Church Street and Ridge Avenue.

The bankruptcy of the original developer left a big hole in the ground, a problem left unresolved for years and an open eyesore on one of Evanston’s busiest streets.

The City gave the go-ahead to Focus several weeks ago, and the company is said to be in the process of getting the financing. The new building will pick up the design of developer Thomas Roszak’s original plans and use the same or similar materials.
