Demolition Permits Issued for 4335 N Richmond Street in Irving Park

A demolition permit was issued yesterday for a three-story, multi-unit masonry building located at 4335 N Richmond Street in the Irving Park neighborhood. The permit’s owners have been listed as Carlson Properties LLC. The structure had seen extensive damage due to a fire earlier this year, and required demolition due to the fact the structure was not structurally sound. It is also worth noting that the photo shown for this article was from before the fire and does not reflect its current condition.

As for transportation options, Route 78 is the nearest bus service and can be found at the intersection of Montrose & Francisco via a three-minute walk east. The CTA Brown Line can be found via a nine-minute walk north to the Francisco station. For those looking for local amenities, there are plenty of retail and dining options available along the nearby W Montrose Avenue.

Precision Excavation LLC is serving as the demolition contractor on this project. At the time of publication, no permits have been submitted for any future plans.

    Absolutely ridiculous.

  2. You have the wrong building pictured. That is a single family home at 4333. The demolotion is 4335. There is no garage being demoed

      Hi Mark, thank you for bringing this to our attention – we have corrected the image to reflect the correct address

  3. I feel the need to address some misinformation here. I am the resident of 4333 N Richmond, which is the building in the photo. This building is NOT being torn down. The building the permits were issued is indeed 4335-4339 N Richmond, which was the source of the massive February fire that destroyed Twisted Hippo and the Ninja gym. It is inhabital, there is no roof, and utterly destroyed by the fire. And has become a source for gang activity. It needs to be demolished

      Hi Sara, thank you for your comment. The image was updated earlier this afternoon, but please let us know if your residence is still showing upon refresh. Apologies for this mix-up, I can only imagine how jarring it would be to see my house shown in a demolition article

      • The issue is your post implies that the building should not be demolished. That is factually wrong. It is a massive safety issue. A Google street image from a few years ago doesn’t not show the damage and the reality of it today.

          Post has been updated to explain the fire, the current conditions requiring demolition, and a caveat that the photo is outdated

          I have also added an image originally taken by CBS showing the extent of the fire – this post had not depicted the extent of the damage and lack of viability for any sort of preservation, and we will be sure to make note of these points should we cover the site again
