Demolition begins: Webster Square in Lincoln Park

Days are numbered for the vacant Lincoln Park Hospital building.

Here's a couple photos from last Friday of Lincoln Park Hospital.  The garage demolition has begun.  It signals progress of the controversial (to some) Webster Square development that will bring density to a vibrant neighborhood...the type of population density that's good for local business.

Let's hope the development is executed well. We see far too many 10 to 15 year old developments with rusting, stained and worn exterior materials.  We'll take an all brick vintage building every time!
