Permits were issued last week for the demolition of a two-story commercial building located at 210 W Chestnut Street in Near North Side neighborhood. The permit’s owner has been listed as 920 N Wells Street LLC. The demolition permit indicates the building demolished has a masonry exterior and the scope of removal includes the slab foundation. The structure will give way to 868 N Wells Street, a 25-story tower serving as the next phase of JDL’s North Union megadevelopment.
Bus service for Route 37 can be found at the intersection of Orleans & Chestnut via a two-minute walk west along Chestnut Street. The nearest CTA Brown and Purple Lines are available at the Chicago station via a four-minute walk south. There are many popular restaurants and retail options within five minutes of the property.
Atlas Industries, Inc is serving as the demolition contractor. At the time of this writing, no construction permits for 868 N Wells Street have been filed or issued, and an anticipated completion date has not yet been announced for the project.
