And now, Dear Reader, our travels take us east to the lakefront and one of the most striking of the high rises on the north side: the Edgewater Beach Apartments. It used to have a sister property, the Edgewater Beach Hotel, also pink, but it’s since been demolished in the wave of progress.
The interesting thing about this building, besides it’s vibrant pink hue, is its shape: it’s got several wings radiating out from the center. Along the street level, on the side away from the lake, are several businesses. On the side facing the lake there’s nothing but parkland, Lake Shore Drive, and the lake itself: Lake Michigan.
The Edgewater Historical Society has a lovely series of articles on the building and its history, including the Hotel itself, here.
Join us tomorrow when we travel south along the Drive to the world famous Field Museum.
