Roots of Argyle Toppled As Demolition Begins At 1101-1107 W. Argyle

Fencing surrounds 1101 W. Argyle during demolition

We first heard of plans to convert the former Hoa Nam Grocery into a 6 story apartment building back in May. 

Even though demolition permits were issued back in April, the site was quiet until this week when we spotted construction fencing and demo crews on site. 

Hopefully those who enjoyed the "Roots of Argyle" mural were able to pay their respects as it was mostly demoed by Thursday evening.

According to the building permit, 16 apartments are planned in a new 6 story building on the southwest corner of Argyle & Winthrop with ground floor retail.  This is a TOD building due to the proximity to the Red Line station and only 8 parking spaces are included for residents. 

The building remains in the city's permitting process but received a new approval this month. We expect construction soon.

We are excited for more density on this strip. No rendering is available at this time so we are hoping for the best on a prominent corner!

  1. Good to see low parking on this one. The CTA is literally at their front door.
