Chicago Historic Resources Survey: Not included [?]
Owner: 1714 N. Wood LLC
Permit Description: Wreck and remove a 2 1/2 story frame 2 unit building with no garage.
Status: Demolition permit issued 10/16/12
Located in an area with many tear downs for new residential construction, this building has already been prepped for demolition by having its siding removed. It has no 311 call records.
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.
