Street view of 1231 W Cornelia Avenue

A demolition permit was issued last week for the removal of a two-story multi-unit masonry residence along with a detached masonry garage located at 1231 W Cornelia Avenue in the Lake View neighborhood. The permit’s owner has been listed as Kyle Gillespie.

In terms of transportation access, the closest bus option is Route 22. This route can be found at the intersection of Clark & Cornelia via a five-minute walk east. The CTA L Brown line can be found at the Southport station via five-minute south.

All Concrete Chicago is serving as the demolition contractor on this project. At the time of publication, no plans have been submitted for any future developments.

  1. I delivered newspapers there 48 yrs ago.

  2. I hate seeing this type of building, especially in Chicago neighborhoods, being torn down. The replacement rarely has the character of the existing building.
