Here's a screencast with some info on a Stop Work Order issued for The Wrigleyville Hotel, 3469 North Clark St., Chicago.
The issue is that it is currently three stories, but they apparently did not have the exterior demolition permit necessary to tear off the roof and build upwards from there.
Stuff covered in this screencast:
- Finding info on an exact address on EveryBlock
- Geocoding images in Flickr so they appear on EveryBlock and other services
- Using Google Maps streetview in research
- The difficulty of searching the Chicago building code
This is a new thing I'm doing-- mini-investigations via screencast-- let me know what you think!
