For some time we have monitored, chronicled, and lamented the demise of Saint Dominic’s Church at 357 West Locust Street in Cabrini Green. The historic church was a key brick in the building of today’s Chicago. But like many bricks that get worn over the decades, it was tossed aside and abandoned.
Now construction permits have been issued for the new condominium block that will rise on the corner of West Locust and North Sedgwick Street, recently scraped clean of the church and its associated buildings.
NEW FOUNDATION FOR A 6-STORY, 45 DWELLING UNIT MULTI-FAMILY RESIDENTIAL BLDG WITH 52 CAR SPRINKLERED GARAGE, TYPE 1-A AND 1-C CONSTRUCTION.
The new condo building was designed by Sullivan Goulette & Wilson Architects and is going by the name Sedgwick at Locust. The building is going to be six stories tall, and a little over 90 feet in height.
It’s being marketed as if it’s part of the River North neighborhood, with condominiums running from about $450,000 to $675,000.
