As The Ronsley Gets A New Life, Its Water Tank Must Go

The Ronsley, at 676 North Kingsbury.

On the final day of August, the city issued yet another demolition permit for a Chicago water tank. This time, the subject resides atop 676 North Kingsbury Street in the River North neighborhood. Precision Excavation will handle the demo.

As we documented back in June of last year, The Ronsley (known then as the Park Kingsbury Luxury Lofts) is undergoing a major rehab. While there’s a permit on the books from June 2015 for a $500,000 restoration of the exterior masonry, the plans are much bigger than updating the facade. Have a gander at the website for renderings of what the redevelopers intend to accomplish.
