Architect

James Denson, 1925

Description

Architect James Denson designed this sprawling 1925 double courtyard brick apartment building to look like a castle, with crenelations, turrets and towers. A moat-like pond was once graced by live swans. This feature has been removed, but the bridges and some retaining walls remain. Inside the complex, an extravagant indoor pool, reflecting the opulence of the era, is one of Chicago's best-kept secrets.

Visitor Experience
