Demolition permits have been issued for a two-story masonry commercial building located at 210 W Chestnut Street in Near North Side. While the permits were issued for 210 W Chestnut Street, the upcoming building address will be 232 W Chestnut Street. This permit is part of a wave of demolitions meant to make way for the upcoming North Union development led by JDL Development.
As we previously reported, the development will replace several structures to make way for the mega-development. Designed by Hartshorne Plunkard Architecture the future structure is planned as a five-story build and will contain a total of 35 residential units. The building will have a largely steel facade in keeping with the other buildings planned in the development.
