The former home on the site, known as Homestead, was the residence of Michael and Mary Ellen Mervis for years. The three-story home was built in 1918. They sold the property to New Land Enterprises in 2006, who lost the property to Anchor Bank in a foreclosure settlement. Wangard bought the property from Anchor in 2012.
New Land purchased the home for $950,000.
The Mervis’ had the city-owned triangle across the street turned into a pocket park. They privately funded this effort.
Mike Mervis referenced his frustration with the upkeep on the property after the sale in a 2008 proposal for the Transera high-rise at 1550 N. Prospect Ave.
