For years, the site of the Cabrini-Green housing projects on Chicago's Near North Side has undergone massive transformation.

The infamous housing projects became synonymous with crime and poverty over the years, and the high rises that once housed more than 15,000 low income residents are being replaced with condos.

Ryan Flynn, who has been documenting Cabrini-Green's transformation on his blog, created a stop-motion video of the latest building to see the wrecking ball. Flynn took photos of the changing building starting in November of 2009 up until the building's full demolition on Feb. 20.
