5555 N. Sheridan Rd.


Andersonville / Edgewater


Marshall & Fox, 1928


Edgewater Beach Apartments is the only remaining part of the Edgewater Beach Hotel complex, constructed by Marshall and Fox starting in 1918. This massive, Spanish-style “Pink Palace” was connected to the hotel by a three-block beach promenade for decades. The hotel was demolished in the late 1960s, a decade after the extension of Lake Shore Drive severed its connection to the beach. The building became a co-op in 1949 and was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1994. It has a unique Maltese-Cross shape to give each room maximum natural light and views of Lake Michigan. An indoor terrace overlooks the original Beaux-Arts pool.
