Earlier this week, the City of Chicago approved a demolition permit for the home, located at 1516 W. Wrightwood Ave, according to DNA Info

The residence, which appeared in the opening credits of the series that followed Chicago policemen Carl Winslow, his family and their pesky neighbor Steve Urkel, will be wrecked and removed to make room for a three-unit abode on the lot.

Coldwell Banker realtors told the publication that renovations were not viable. However, the owners plan to hang a photo of the original house in the entry of the new building. 

“Family Matters” made its debut on ABC in September of 1989. It lasted for nine seasons, airing its last episode in July of 1998.

Although it was filmed in California, the series used the Chicago home as the backdrop. Take a look back at the opener below to spot it.
