They do have their permits now. Status should be updated assuming they’ve started actual work.

It looks mostly intact in this 1984 photo – http://cinematreasures.org/comments?page=1&theater_id=2534#comment-348260 – was the removed plaster just black areas?

They seem to be having trouble getting a permit. They passed review for Ventilation and Refrigeration but were denied Architectural & Fire, Disabilities, Structural, Fire Prevention, Environmental, Electrical, and Plumbing. Not sure how to interpret these. The reviews were completed in early August.

Looks like an old building. Maybe not demolished after all.

Burling & Adler was Dankmar Adler’s firm before teaming with Louis Sullivan. Adler & Sullivan’s Schiller (Garrick) Theatre was adjacent to the Apollo, and the Borden Block, Adler & Sullivan’s first commission, was adjacent to the Schiller.

The building at 4717 is the one with the glass block that looks like it used to be a garage. Maybe the same building.

The neon is presently being restored. There are big plans for the Logan in the future including new seats, a more arts and community focus, restoration of some historic elements, lobby remodel, etc.
