Chicago Historic Resources Survey: Not included [?]
Owner: City of Chicago
Permit Description: Wreck & remove 2 story brick multi-unit residential building w/bsmt.

This foreclosed building was reported vacant to 311 on October 1, 2010 and April 18, 2012 and received seven violations while vacant and open in 2011.
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.
