Chicago Landmark Ordinance
Chicago (Cook Co.)


“A Special 11th Designation”


Due to a January 30, 2009, Appellate Court ruling, the city’s 41-year-old ordinance is operating under a cloud. The court said the ordinance’s criteria for landmark designation were “vague” and sent the case back to the trial court for review. 


The final results of the case could have a huge impact on not only the 277 Chicago landmark buildings and 51 districts, but on local landmark ordinances across Illinois and the nation.
