SOUTHPORT CORRIDOR — The rollercoaster of development along the Southport Corridor continued as Mystic Celt closed this week.

The Irish pub and grill, 3441-43 N. Southport Ave., closed Saturday after 12 years in Lakeview. The Southport Corridor blog first reported news of the closure in November after tracking the sale of the building to L3 Capital over the summer.

The space is still listed as available for lease through Cushman and Wakefield. The listing offers options to parcel the 7,200-square-foot space into two units of 3,600 square feet or three units of 2,447 square feet.

Since 2013, L3 Capital has invested more than $300 million in the strip of Southport from Addison to Belmont, according to Crain's Chicago. In that time, it has leased properties to independent businesses like the Southport Grocery & Cafe and national retailers like Lou & Grey, Lululemon and Free People.

L3 Capital did not immediately return a request for comment.

J. Crew and SoulCycle are opening soon in L3 Capital's latest project, a newly erected two-story retail building at 3423 N. Southport Ave.

Since December, Southport Avenue has been struck by changes for several long-time staples of the west Lakeview corridor. Deleece reopens Friday as Grassroots, while Justin's closed Jan. 2 after 31 years.
