Permits were issued on the 29th for the removal of a two-story residential building located at 831 N Maplewood Avenue in West Town. The permit owner is listed as 831 N Maplewood LLC and they were also issued a permit for a new construction back in early October. The new building plans consist of three total units, a basement level, a rooftop deck, front and rear decks, and a detached three-vehicle garage with its own rooftop deck.
Future residents will find bus service for Route 66 at the intersection of Chicago & Campbell stop, within a three-minute walk of the site. Route 49 can also be accessed via a five-minute walk east to the Western & Iowa stop. There are many popular shops and dining establishments that are readily accessible via foot along N Western and W Chicago Avenues.
All Concrete Chicago Inc will be acting as the demolition contractor on this project. No timeline has been announced for the upcoming build but with this demolition permit issued construction will likely begin soon.

I wish there was a program that designated all Graystones in the city as eligible for tax credits to encourage renovation vs demolition.
