Under the signature of Michael Moran and President Jonathan Fine, Preservation Chicago has sent a letter to Chicago Commissioner of Planning and Development Denise Casalino opposing a new development by Hamilton Partners, designed by architect Lucien Lagrange, that would involve demolition of substantial portions of William LeBaron Jenney's 1893-94 New York Life Building at 39 S. LaSalle Street.
Full text of the letter can be found in the first comment to this post.
