Emergency demolition permits have been issued for 6226 S Aberdeen Street, a two-story residential building in Englewood. The masonry structure contains multiple units, and is owned by the City of Chicago.
The building occupies roughly half of the narrow lot, which points east onto S Aberdeen Street. The property is located near the intersection of two perpendicular bus routes. The closest of these is a two-minute walk southeast to 63rd & Aberdeen, which is serviced by the east and westbound Bus 63. The next closest stop is Racine & 62nd Street, which is serviced by the north and southbound Route 44.
As far as CTA L access, two Green Line stations are within walking distance, the closest of which is Halsted 10 minutes east. The further of the two is Ashland/63rd station, which is 15 minutes west.
Outdoor space in the area includes three-minute walk northeast is the 0.29-acre Carpenter Philo-Playlot Park at the corner of S Carpenter Street and W 62nd Street. Meanwhile, the 60-acre Ogden Park can be found via an 11-minute walk southwest.
McDonagh Demolition is listed as the wrecking contractor. It is unknown what prompted the demolition, but Google imagery shows the windows having been boarded up for close to a decade. Imagery from 2019 shows a sign from the alderman posted at the entrance, likely indicating condemnation of the structure for public use. The city has not indicated a timeline for the demolition or what it plans to do with the property. The area is zoned for RS-3, allowing for single-family residences and two-flats.
