Oman & Lilienthal, 1939
Built in 1939, this eight-story building has Art Moderne details similar to those found in the nearby Granville Gardens and Wolcott Gardens apartments, including corner windows, multicolored stripes of brick and thin wall plane windows set close to the surface. The six staggered 8-story blocks are arranged in a way that offers views of Lake Michigan and maximizes ventilation for the 203 units, while creating a delightful private courtyard that houses a remarkable fountain.
Visitors will be able to see the courtyard and building lobby, which will feature historical background materials and a video showcasing historic photos of the building.
