Its five rusty steel columns topped by the letters C-O-Y-N-E are a landmark in the Fulton River District. Now the building at 330 North Green Street may have a date with a wrecking ball.

Crain’s Chicago Business reports that Sterling Bay wants to build a 400,000 square-foot building at the location where the nearly 120-year-old college’s former 76,000 square foot building is now.

The technical college moved to State Street earlier this summer, and Sterling Bay bought the Fulton River District property last month. The real estate developer’s Andy Gloor told Crain’s that while the new building was slated to go up next to the existing building, it could still be demolished.
