Ald. Moreno Wants Old Church Saved, Not Demolished For Condos

On Tuesday, Moreno (1st) said that there is no deal in place for the sale of Saint John United Church of Christ, 2442 W. Moffat St., contrary to what the pastor said last week.

    Ald. Moreno Wants Old Church Saved, Not Demolished For Condos
    LOGAN SQUARE - Although a developer and the pastor of a 105-year-old church say they still plan on striking a deal that involves demolishing the building, Ald. Proco Joe Moreno said he is working to prevent that.

  • WestLogan 8 year Chicagoan

    It would be such a tragedy to lose such a beautiful old building. I wish more builders had the passion, and cash, to renovate instead of demolishing.

  • I hope it gets saved... But somewhat doubt it will... Time will tell
