Architect

Enoch Hill Turnock, 1893

Description

These unique apartments were commissioned by the publisher of American Contractor Magazine and completed in 1893 as the Lincoln Park Palace. Designed by Enoch Hill Turnock, the building has been featured in movies such as Child's Play, Running Scared and Hoodlum. The Romanesque-Revival building was landmarked in 1982 and has maintained its original architectural integrity. The preserved interior features a manually-operated cage elevator and suspended glass-block walkways in a glass-roofed central atrium.
