Modernist “Chicago School” architecture can be seen throughout the city that bears it name. Now, homebuyers with a taste for the retro-future (or the future’s past) can own a unit in Chicago’s Gold Coast that is unique, historic and eye-poppingly fresh at the same time. This Koenig & Strey listed condo at 1209 N State is part of the restored and landmarked Frank Fisher building
Designed by Andrew Rebori, the Frank Fisher Apartments (built for the former Marshall Field executive of the same name) are considered prime examples of pre-World War II Modernism. Constructed in the late 1930s, the four-story building houses 12 duplexes and one triplex. Elegant and spacious, the units contain all of the Rebori characteristics – streamlined rooms, curving walls and art-glass windows. This duplex unit, represented by Meredith Meserow, is formerly a 2 bedroom, converted to an extra-large one-bedroom. Its original features are augmented by a new kitchen and baths.
