Applicant: Alpine Demolition Services, LLC

Permit Description: The demolition of a three-story masonry church, while preserving the foundations and footings.
Status: Under Review

Preservation Chicago has advocated for St. Stephenson for many years. We found multiple developers interested in adaptively reusing this historic building for a residential use. Multiple offers for purchase that were presented, but the church ownership declined all offers. We continue to outreach to ownership regarding potential alternative, but they have been unresponsive.
