Welcome to 1700 E 56TH STREET
In Chicago's prestigious Hyde Park, nestled just across the way from Promontory Point Park, is the 1700 Building - a modern concrete structure that soars 376 feet into the air, making it the tallest in this borough. The 38-floor high-rise was designed by the Lowenberg Architects and completed in 1968 as a luxury apartment building. But in 1994, the structure became Hyde Park's largest condominium conversion in a decade, with 369 residences.
To honor the city's rich architectural history, the condominium conversion project featured five unique unit designs, all of which were named for a famous Chicago architect.
The building's smallest unit is called the "Adler"; it's a studio that averages 569 square feet, though it still boasts rich views of the lake, the city and nearby Jackson Park. A one-bedroom, one-bath unit averages 793 square feet and is known as the "Burnham." Larger units include the "Sullivan" and the "Mies van der Rohe," both of which include two bedrooms and two baths. Finally, the "Wright" offers three bedrooms and three bathrooms and averages almost 1,650 square feet.
Residents of the 1700 Building will enjoy more than the views, with the property's many amenities, including bicycle storage, an exercise facility, hospitality room, onsite storage space and a sundeck. A 24-hour doorman also works on site, and most condos include a single garage space.
Beyond the amenities of home, residents here are brilliantly located for enjoying all that Chicago has to offer. Unique specialty shops include Open Produce, less than a quarter mile northwest, Bonne Sante Health Foods and Powell's Bookstores. Also, just beyond Open Produce is the Hyde Park Shopping Center, which is home to Treasure Island supermarket, a 24-hour Walgreens, Office Depot, Ace Hardware, Bonjour Bakery Cafe, Potbelly, Wesley's Shoe Corral, HomeMade Pizza, Toys et Cetera and a post office.
Dining in this portion of Hyde Park is more than inviting. ZAGAT rated establishments in the area include Piccolo Mondo, Snail Thai Cuisine, Cafe Corea Restaurant INC, La Petite Folie and Maravillas Restaurant. But simpler tastes are satisfied as well with the nearby Big Easy (southern food), Bar Louie and Morry's Deli.
