Doom and destruction on North Avenue

They are ripping apart a couple buildings in Old Town to make room for a new apartment development.

Crain’s had the story back in April about the two properties, 227 and 233 West North Avenue, that will be replaced by a 6-story, 60-unit rental building from JAB Real Estate. According to Crain’s, the project also includes 20 parking spots and 2,000 square feet of retail space.

For the time being, KCOM Environmental of Fort Wayne, Indiana (don’t be fooled by the address on the demolition permit. It says Chicago, but that’s a Fort Wayne address and zip code) has the task of tearing down the old structures and clearing space for the new, illustrated here with the video above, and the photos below.
