Description

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.
