7321 S. South Shore Dr.


Chatham / South Shore


Robert DeGolyer, 1928


This 13-story co-operative building takes the shape of a Maltese Cross. It was designed by Robert DeGolyer, who is known for his work in the Gold Coast. It was the last project developed by W. C. Bannerman. Bannerman was then run out of town after its financing was discovered to be a Ponzi scheme. Windsor Beach Apartments has its own private beach and offers dramatic views of Lake Michigan and the skyline. It has touches of Northern Italian design, including a cloistered loggia at the entrance, patterned brickwork and subtle terra cotta stringcourses and balconettes.
