Demolition about to begin at 1200 West Carroll for Sterling Bay office building

A demolition permit was issued Thursday, May 13 for 1212 West Carroll. Coming down will be a metal building at the corner of Carroll and Racine, as well as a brick structure to its west. They comprise what used to be the Midtown Transfer facility. Heneghan Wrecking, already busy a block away with the AMD Milling Company demolition, is wasting no time, having already set up demo fencing around the perimeter, as you’ll see in the photos below.

Going up will be another West Loop office project from Sterling Bay. 1200 West Carroll will be a 14-story, 485,000-square-foot Class A office building designed by Gensler.
