Crews are removing debris from the building in the 800 block of East 57th Street.

Reagan lived in the apartment in Hyde Park with his parents in 1914 and ’15.

The University of Chicago bought the property almost ten years ago, but there are no immediate plans to build on it.

The university will install a plaque to commemorate President Reagan’s connection to the site.
