Located in Wicker Park’s Milwaukee Avenue Historic District, this building is included in the National Register of Historic Places. This district is widely known as one of the finest historic commercial streets in Chicago. It began as an early trade route and has played an important role in Chicago’s economic development. Waves of immigration and shifting ethnic populations in the Milwaukee Avenue District convey important themes of the city’s social history.
The Milwaukee Avenue District retains a solid and exceptional group of historic neighborhood commercial buildings, with a broad range of architectural styles from the late-nineteenth through the early-twentieth centuries–and our project is no exception. This multi-use building maintains its original use including commercial space at street level and the dream of a luxury home on the second.
