Old Chicago Mercantile Exchange (1927-2003)
Does anybody remember this building?
Back in early 2002, the Department of Buildings issued old Chicago Mercantile Exchange Building owners at 300 West Washington (and Franklin) a demolition permit for the 17 story 1927 building. Designed by classical revivalist architect Alfred S. Alschuler, who designed two Chicago landmarks, the London Guarantee Building and Goldblatt's department store, the building is one of 9,600 buildings in Chicago with an "orange rating" - meaning they have historical significance yet have not officially been approved for landmark protection. The Merc was at 97 percent occupancy when the permit was issued. There were numerous protest rallies against the demolition of this historically and architecturally significant building. On December 4, 2002 Mayor Daley introduced a Demolition Delay ordinance into City Council reforming how the Building Department issues demolition permits for historically significant Chicago buildings. A Chicago Tribune investigation found that four percent of the buildings on the Chicago Historic Resources Survey, completed in 1995, had been demolished. The newspaper also reported that almost two-thirds of those structures had been replaced with a vacant lot or parking lot. The demolition of the Mercantile Exchange began at the end of 2002 and was largely completed by the spring of 2003. As predicted, a tax-draining vacant lot still occupies the site at the corner of Franklin and Washington Streets. Several limestone panels that once adorned the building were acquired by the Chicago Mercantile Exchange and are displayed at the current location at 30 S. Wacker Drive.
Old Chicago Had So Much Character.
Cookie cutter construction and replacing perfectly fine buildings are making this city look so sterile. They even gutted a church and turned it into condos. It made me want to vomit.
Yuppies ruined chicago!
