Chicago demolishes 200th vacant building

October 29, 2012 (CHICAGO)

This latest building is the 200th one to be demolished. It is located on East 113th Street in the Roseland community.

Several buildings in that neighborhood have been torn down since July.

The Department of Buildings is also boarding up and securing properties that are known gang havens but are structurally sound and can be eventually put to good use.
