Maryville on Preservation Chicago's list of endangered buildings

 The group, Preservation Chicago, each year announces its "Chicago Seven" list to draw attention to the plight of historic buildings and encourage property owners, city officials and citizens groups to save and reuse them.

 Cuneo Hospital, 720 W. Montrose Ave., an iosyncratic modern design from 1957 by Edo Belli. Community opposition has thwarted the construction of a large-scale mixed-use complex that would have destroyed the vacant hospital, but the building's proximity to the lakefront still makes it a possible site for redevelopment and demolition, Preservation Chicago said.
