The Commission on Chicago Landmarks has approved the demolition of structures at 906 and 910 W Fulton Market in Fulton Market. Located at the corner of W Fulton Market and N Peoria Street, the two structures are part of a redevelopment project spanning between 900 and 910 W Fulton Market. Shorewood Development Group is in charge of the project.
The existing structure at 906 W Fulton Market will be fully demolished, while the existing two-story structure at 910 W Fulton Market will be partially demolished.
The Permit Review Committee previously determined that 906 W Fulton Market was non-contributing to the landmark district and could be demolished completely. 910 W Fulton Market was found to be contributing to the character of the landmark district, but due to the poor structural conditions, most of the building must be replaced. 55 percent of the building will be demolished, with the historic front façade and seven feet of the historic east façade being retained and preserved.
Designed by Hartshorne Plunkard Architecture, the new development will consist of a renovated four-story building at 900 W Fulton Market, topped by a new rooftop addition. A new nine-story building will replace the demolished structure at 906 W Fulton Market. The partially demolished building at 910 W Fulton Market will be refurbished and capped with a rooftop addition. The entire development will rise 123 feet.
The Morgan CTA L station, serviced by the Green and Pink Lines, is within a three-minute walk from the site. The 8 CTA bus, accessed at the Halsted and Fulton Market, can also be reached within a three-minute walk from the site.
With approvals from the landmarks commission, the development can move forward with demolition and ultimately construction. An official timeline for the project has not been announced.
