In the early 1950s when 29 year old Chicago architect Milton Schwartz designed the structure that sits at 320 W Oakdale in Lakeview, little did he know that one day this beautiful building with floor to ceiling windows would be considered for inclusion in the National Register of Historic Places.
Agent Don Breitfelder from the Koenig & Strey Gold Coast office is part of a team that is in the final stages of completing the application needed to apply for this distinguished historical designation. As a longtime resident of this unique composition of steel, concrete and glass, Don shares a PDF of the original sales brochure on his website.
“Drawings of 320 Oakdale were exhibited in the Art Institute of Chicago in 1993 and are currently housed in the museum’s Department of Architecture. We feel that 320 Oakdale has both historical significance and also broad recognition in the architectural community, and we are working diligently for the national registry”, said Breitfelder.
