Wait a minute: haven’t we been here before?
Late last week, the Commission on Chicago Landmarks posted an agenda for its February 7 meeting that contains a couple of surprising items at the bottom of the list.
First, they’re going to consider a report from the Department of Housing and Economic Development on the impact of landmark status for Bertrand Goldberg’s Prentice Hospital building, which Northwestern University wants to tear down.
Then, there’s to be a vote on rescinding landmark status for Prentice on the basis of that report.
Could the commissioners have forgotten that they already did this?
