Pair of Demolition Permits Signals the Start of 710 Grand [Updated]

710 West Grand

It will take longer than 18 seconds, but the garages will be demolished.

708 + 712 = 710.

Oh, I’m sorry. Were you told there would be no math? Allow me to explain.

Yesterday, the City of Chicago filed two demolition permits for properties at 708 West Grand Avenue and 712 West Grand Avenue. The owner of those structures is Wicker Park Apartments, and this is where they’ll erect 710 Grand, a 9-story building at 710 West Grand Avenue in River West with 105 apartments. Included will be 45 parking spaces and 5,000 square feet of retail space. 710 West Grand is a design from Brininstool + Lynch (1333 & 1345 Wabash, among many others.) Recyclean will handle the demolition.

***UPDATE: The City of Chicago issued a third demolition permit, on Thursday the 14th. This one is for the 4-story building between the two “garages.” All three buildings, 708, 710, and 712 West Grand Avenue are now ready to come down.***

712 and 708 West Grand Avenue. That 4-story will come down too, but not the condo building on the far right (hidden by tree)

The demo permit for 708 West Grand. The permit for 712 looks pretty much the same.

It’s no one-story garage, but this is the current 710 West Grand. It will be demolished.

So, pretty much everything you see here, except the cars, gets demolished. 708-712 West Grand Avenue.
