LANSING, Ill. (October 26, 2020) – The building that formerly housed Artlynn Photography was demolished Monday, on the corner of Torrence Avenue and Thornton Road. The building is the latest of a handful to be demolished near that corner.

A Village of Lansing official said Rosemoor Funeral home will also be demolished in the near future. Another Village official said the demolitions will leave that high-visibility corner open to new development.

  1. With the 2 demolitions on Torrance Ave I most certainly hope the the village dose not bring in another strip mall. No more hair, nail , pawn shops or child care centers. How about a real business that we could all patronize.
