Madison/Wabash CTA Station Officially a Goner

CTA Madison/Wabash Station demolition

Sure, for weeks there have been demolition crews crawling all over the 119-year-old elevated train station at 29 North Wabash Avenue busy turning it into a memory.  But the paperwork allowing the demolition of the oldest train station on Wabash Avenue only just came through a couple of days ago:

WRECK AND REMOVE AN EXISTING MADISON ST. LOOP ELEVATED CTA STATION.

Such is life in the big city.

The Chicago Architecture Blog’s Daniel Schell chugged over there a little while ago to take a few pictures of the station before it becomes nothing more than a deep archive page at Chicago-L.org.

Location: 29 North Halsted Street, The Loop
