Commission on Chicago Landmarks Fails to Pass Proposal to Gut Farwell Building for a Parking Garage

In a vote that even stunned preservationists, the Commission on Chicago Landmarks about an hour ago failed to pass a proposal that would have allowed for the "dismantlement, demolition, repair and reconstruction of a Chicago Landmark."

The Commission failed to get a simple majority when 4 members voted for the proposal, 3 against it, and one abstained.

More color details in a moment or two from your faithful flygirl who attended today's session at the Cook County Building.
