Endangered List Gets Longer

By Joanna Miller in Arts & Entertainment on Mar 1, 2006 9:55PM

Earlier this year, Chicagoist wondered if 2006 would be a bad year for architecture. Well, it’s not getting much better. The Landmarks Preservation Council of Illinois released its annual list of the state’s 10 most-endangered historic places today, and this year, there’s 11. The Pilgrim Baptist Church received a “special 11th designation because of the challenging nature of its proposed preservation plans.” main entry.jpg

The list is released in hopes of generating support for the preservation of endangered buildings. Others on the list:

Pickford Theater Building, 3459 S. Michigan Avenue
Three religious structures on the 3400 to 3700 blocks of W. Douglas – two former synagogues and the former Hebrew Theological College
Westinghouse High School, 3301 W. Franklin
