Wednesday, a demolition permit was filed by the City of Chicago, spelling doom for yet anther Chicago Water Tank, this one at 1500 North Halsted Street in the Goose Island neighborhood.
You’ve noticed this tank every time you’ve passed through the S-curves over North Avenue on the Brown and Purple Line trains, between the Sedgwick and Armitage stops. And if you’re living in or visiting the New City development, you’re right next door to it. But not for much longer.
Milburn LLC of Hillside, Illinois will do the dirty work of demolishing the tank.
