Demolition of the existing buildings has begun on the site a new 214-unit apartment complex in Evanston. Call it a building-breaking rather than a groundbreaking.
The AMLI Evanston complex is scheduled for Spring 2013 and will include ground-level retail space and artist live / work lofts. It’s located at Chicago Ave and Kedzie St, a block from the venerable Chicago Main Newsstand.
