Building 521 - Gunner's Mate School at Great Lakes Naval Station in North Chicago, Illinois is threatened with demolition. Designed by Skidmore, Owings & Merrill and completed in 1954, this amazing Bruce Graham-designed building has been unused for years.
The Navy is moving forward with plans to demolish this building. However, the Navy is open to an outside entity/contractor using the building or to disassembling and moving the building off the base.
The Navy is accepting proposals for re-use of the building through Wednesday, February 13, 2008.
