2015 Chicago 7 most endangered building
Every year, Preservation Chicago issues its call for nominations to its "Chicago's 7" list of Most Endangered Buildings. The purpose of the Chicago 7 is to raise public awareness about the threats facing some of Chicago's most at-risk architectural treasures, whether they are a single building, an entire neighborhood, or a thematic category of buildings, such as Great Chicago Warehouses or Chicago's Religious Structures.
The Chicago 7 Designation Offers:
* Development of a comprehensive action plan to guide Preservation Chicago and local efforts.
What does it mean to be an endangered building and what are the general guidelines for considerations?
* There must be a degree of endangerment by owner neglect, proposed demolition, rezoning, or redevelopment, and/or other human or environmental factors.
( Preservation Chicago will be launching its new website in Spring 2015 )
