The Old Sullivan’s Bank Building Mention In Chicago Tribune

I always have wondered why the Sullivan Bank Building at the corner of West Main and North Park Place isn’t better restored. You would think that with the Midland and other fine buildings restored, at least the beautiful facade of the bank would be of interest. Here is a mention in the Chicago Tribune about some of the restoration efforts.

I’ve always found that combination of The Sparta, the coin store, and the Sullivan were an interesting combination. I’ve always thought that it looks like the start of something great, but then, it just stops and less interesting structures take over from there.

It appears that there is more work happening to the building. Here’s a photo taken on 8/2/2011.
