Permit Description: Wreck & remove 2 story brick single family residence.
Status: Demolition permit issued 12/27/2012
This North Lawndale row house received 13 violations between June 2011 to March 2012. It will be the ninth demolished building on its side of the block.
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.
