6018 N. Kenmore

In August of 2007, we learned that an 8-unit condo building was proposed for the site. The construction of this building would require the demolition of the house. Mrs. Marie Kraemer, the long-time owner of the house, died in May and the trustee for the estate was seeking to sell the property.

If demolished, it would be the first “orange” rated house in Edgewater to meet this fate. “Orange” is the color code rating that was given by the City of Chicago in a survey of all structures in the City over a decade ago. It means the structure has historical or architectural qualities that have the potential to have the structure designated by the City as a landmark.
