Landmarking & Preservation

 

“Landmark designation benefits all the citizens of Chicago – present and future. Landmarks help stabilize and redevelop our neighborhoods and preserve the city’s architectural and cultural heritage. They also provide a significant economic benefit to both the owner and the community."

 

Landmark designation means that a building or district has a significant value to the historic architectural and cultural heritage of the city. This status can only be conveyed by the Chicago City Council, based on a recommendation from the commission. There are over 100 buildings in our neighborhood that have been designated as historically significant.
