Former Fulton Market restaurant and Schlitz tavern is safe from wrecking ball - for now - after city revokes demolition permit

A surviving Victorian building in Chicago’s rapidly developing Fulton Market district, originally a Schlitz tavern and later the home of the Italian restaurant La Luce, has been temporarily spared a date with the wrecking ball.

City officials on Wednesday revoked a demolition permit for the building, located at 1393-1399 W. Lake St., that was mistakenly issued Monday, according to Peter Strazzabosco, a spokesman for the city’s Department of Planning and Development.

The permit has been put on hold through March 1 under the city’s so-called “demolition delay” ordinance, which requires city officials to review applications to tear down potential landmark buildings.

“This sort of slipped through,” said Ward Miller, executive director of the advocacy group Preservation Chicago.
