Owner: Sproutcor LLC
Permit Description: Wreck and remove a 3-story brick single-family home and garage.
Status: Released on 6/27/11; Demolition permit issued 3/07/12
As is increasingly the norm in the area, this orange-rated Italianate residential building is being demolished with its neighbor to the north, 1950 N. Burling St. A new multi-million dollar residence will be built in their place.
No 311 calls or other recent permits have been placed regarding this residence.
Additional details about the neighborhood and its major new construction projects are available in the 1950 N. Burling St. entry.
Over the course of 2012 David Schalliol produced a photographic portrait of 100 of the hundreds of buildings threatened with demolition in the city of Chicago. Nearly all of the buildings have since been demolished. Visit the background information section for more information about the project, including definitions and links to other building resources.
The series is supported by a generous grant from the Richard H. Driehaus Foundation.
