845 West Madison Project Starts Demo

Dear Neighbors,

We wanted to inform you that demolition of the existing H2O+ warehouse/office is scheduled to start. Demolition will take about 4 weeks. Foundation work will not commence until the Spring, and the entire site will remain fenced and secured until that time.

As our development moves forward, we have set up this email address for ease of communication. Please email community@845WMadison.com for questions regarding existing work, logistics, and schedule.

The Greektown Special Service Area Tax Commission #16 and the West Central Association Chamber of Commerce are working immediately with the Chicago Police Department, Alderman Burnett's office, and other city departments to determine the facts of this serious matter and will be taking appropriate action. The safety of the community is our paramount concern.
