A handful of weeks after being issued a demolition permit, a three-story Italianate style building at 1000 W. Monroe in Chicago’s trendy West Loop is apparently no more. This week, Daniel Schell of the construction blog Building Up Chicago swung by the site and documented the void left behind by the former 1889 structure as well as construction fencing advertising its replacement: an ultra-modern, boutique condo project.

Designed by Valerio Dewalt Train Associates, the eight-story ‘Mille at 1000 West Monroe’ condos will deliver twelve three-bedroom residences with one parking spot per unit starting around $1 million each. According to its official website, the condos will feature “exceptional lifestyle accoutrements” such as Italian kitchen cabinetry plus Wolf and Sub-Zero appliances.

So far, no construction permits have been issued for the new condo building.
