Last week marked the closing chapter in the story of the old St. Dominic's parish near the former Cabrini-Green site. The fate of the former Roman Catholic church was sealed in May when the Chicago Plan Commission approved a proposal to build new condos on the site and just days later, the city issued a demolition permit to raze the 110 year old Romanesque Revival structure. Last Friday, demolition crews were spotted on the site and several Curbed readers stopped by to get one last shot of the building as it was being torn down. Soon enough, a six story, 45-unit condo building designed by Sullivan Goulette & Wilson Architects will take its place. The church joins the Art Deco Salerno Cookie factory in being a notable demolition of a historic building to take place this year.
