Purple Hotel to Finally Be Demolished?

Looks like Stuart Levine's former drug den might finally get demolished after all. Lincolnwood's Purple Hotel was shut down four years ago when inspectors discovered rodent droppings, mold, and a leaky roof, among other violations. Since then, owner Village Resorts Inc. has been trying to sell the place for $25.8 million, without much luck. The Sun-Times reports that a judge signed a consent order allowing the town of Lincolnwood to demolish it on Aug. 1 if Village Resorts doesn't fix the 31 code violations. [Sun-Times]
