Deep inside the old Union Stockyards is one of America's largest providers of reclaimed brick and building materials. As old buildings are demolished in Chicago, Stockyards Brick salvages and re-sells their bricks, pavers, stone, timber, terra cotta and architectural artifacts for use in projects all over the country. Treasures from several well-known demolished buildings await new uses at this former Swift meatpacking warehouse. The interior of the warehouse, a work in progress, is also being transformed into a unique showroom and office.
