Demolition crews are pretty close to running out of stuff to demolish to make way for the new Marriott Marquis McCormick Place anticipated for the southwest corner of South Prairie Avenue and East Cermak Road.

The Chicago Architecture Blog’s Daniel Schell skittered by recently and for the most part, it looks like the land on that block has been scraped clean except for the American Book Company Building (330 East Cermak Road), which will be rehabilitated and actually incorporated as office space into the new 715-foot-tall convention center hotel designed by Gensler.

Location: South Prairie Avenue and East Cermak Road, South Loop
