Facts

  • Both the Algonquins and the Chippewa are part of an area called "Indian Village", where several buildings take their names from famous Native American persons or tribes. Others are The Narragansett and The Powhatan.
  • The buildings were designed by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe and associated architects soon after his landmark Promontory Apartments five blocks south.
  • The six Algonquin Apartments towers are identical 14-story buildings in East Kenwood, just north of the Hyde Park neighborhood border.
  • The buildings are arranged in two rows: 4 buildings on the west, and 2 more directly east of the middle two of those.
  • Another 14-story building very similar to the Algonquins fills the space in the southeast corner of the lot. Named The Chippewa, it was built by the same developers but contains condominiums.
