Facts

  • The building is situated on a block where the wall of lakefront buildings steps eastward. This gives units on the north side a clear view towards the downtown skyline.
  • A private park and swimming pool occupy prime real estate on the northern part of the lot, where 55th Street meets South Shore Drive.
  • The 2 wings on the east side of the building were originally capped with short pyramids.
  • The limestone cornice on the north facade is ornamented with a repeating bird motif.
  • The front fire escape fits into a notch running up the building's narrow eastern facade. At each landing it forms a small curved balcony.
