Friends don't let friends build new kitchens in tear-downs

642 Lake Avenue was listed as a land sale back in 2015, audaciously priced at $4.995 million before dropping to $3.499 by 2026. Undaunted, the owners redid the kitchen last year and cast it afloat on the waters this spring at $4.9, and toda dropped it to$4.650.

Land is land: 2 acres in this neighborhood is probably worth $2, $2.5, tops, and a new Boshe dishwasher isn't really going to change that equation.  Isn't there someone who will intervene?
