Chicago Apartments - A Century and Beyond of Lakefront Luxury, Hardback Book

Chicago Apartments - A Century and Beyond of Lakefront Luxury Hardback

Hardback

Description

The Chicago lakefront is one of America's urban wonders.

The ribbon of high rise luxury apartment buildings along the Lake Michigan shore has few, if any, rivals nationwide for sustained architectural significance.

This historic confluence of site, money, style, and development lies at the heart of the updated edition of Neil Harris's Chicago Apartments: A Century and Beyond of Lakefront Luxury.

The book features more than 100 buildings, stretching from south to north and across more than a century, each with its own special combination of design choice, floor plans, and background story.

Harris, with the assistance of Teri J. Edelstein, proves to be an affable and knowledgeable tour guide, guiding us through dozens of buildings, detailing a host of inimitable development histories, design choices, floor plans, and more along the way.

Of particular note are recent structures on the Chicago River and south of the Loop that are proposing new definitions of comfort and extravagance.

Featuring nearly 350 stunning images and a foreword by renowned Chicago author Sara Paretsky, this new edition of Chicago Apartments offers a wide-ranging look inside some of the Windy City's most magnificent abodes.
