|West side of Peoria, North of Lake|
Preservation Division within Chicago's Department of Planning and Development. Since January I've been working with our consultants to develop a document which analyzes the architectural character of a pending historic district and creates some recommendations on how to best retain that character in light of future changes and new developments.
This illustration is something I put together in my spare time (mostly over lunch) to be placed on the cover of that document. I've simplified it significantly, but I think it captures some of the interest of this area. The two buildings on the left are 1890s, while the one on the right is c. 1910. This area has been in constant use by wholesale food industries since 1850.
