Add three more Chicago water tanks to the list of the doomed. All three were named in demolition permits within a two-day span last week, with their fates being sealed Thursday and Friday.
The photo above shows the water tank at 350 West Kinzie Street, the home of Lock Up Self Storage. It has been contracted to Heneghan Wrecking Company for demolition.
404 South Wells Street and 412 South Wells Street are both home to the Cactus Bar. 412, the Vogue Building, is a Chicago School 10-story mid-rise built in 1908. RWB Group of Palos Hills has been contracted to demolish both tanks.
Fear not. This water tank, one of Chicago’s more iconic, is safe. For now. It rests atop the Hunter Building, just down the street at 527 South Wells.
