Chicago-Main work moves forward

Demolition work on the site of the Main Street Station condominium development is nearing completion this week.

Broken terra cotta pieces fill the sidewalk in front of the former White Hen Pantry.

Developer Bernard Katz and Associates reports over a quarter of the units in the nine-story building planned for the site at the southeast corner of Main Street and Chicago Avenue are already sold.


The development of one- and two-bedroom condos was approved by the City Council late last year following a three-year legal battle over zoning for the property.

Many of the retail shops formerly at the site have moved to other locations in Evanston.
