1103 and 1105 South 47th Street

These adjoining structures are on the corner of 47th and Chester and were built in 1915. The building is obviously abandoned. The windows are boarded up, there is a significant amount of deterioration on the front facade, the paint on the pilasters is peeling, and according to the nominator, “the back of the building is crumbling.” It was nominated because¬†”saving this property would make this a more appealing intersection and put more eyes in this area to counter-act some of the less desirable businesses.” It is owned by a landlord who has let the building deteriorate. ¬†The corner building was originally meant for a storefront with a dwelling space over it.
