Demolition Update: 7-story Nellie A. Black Memorial Pavilion reduced to 6

Nellie A. Black Pavilion

Just beyond the carnage of the old Children’s Memorial Hospital, the Nellie A. Black Memorial Pavilion undergoes the same fate.

The Nellie A. Black Pavilion at 700 West Fullerton Parkway in Lincoln Park — the former 7-story brick building being removed to make room for a new 7-story brick building — is now closer to 6.1 floors, as demolition crews from American Demolition have begun the slow, painstaking process of bringing the structure down without harming buildings to the west and north, mere inches away. In its place will be a senior living center from Belmont Village.
