This historically important building was constructed on Marine Drive in 1939 and was the first all-electric building in Chicago. The original architectural plans are archived in the Chicago History Museum. The building is abundant in art deco treasures and among its many unique features includes a large interior courtyard with an Art Deco fountain and decorative pool. Efforts have been made to preserve the integrity of the original designs and period ambiance whenever possible.
The location is easily accessible by public transportation with a bus stop at the front of the property and two blocks from the L Red Line.
