Part I, Downtown: Chicago Motor Club Building and More

New, 5 comments

As F. Scott Fitzgerald famously wrote, "There are no second acts in American lives." But if the city's rising hotel market is any indication, the long-vacant Chicago Motor Club Building may just get one. As David Roeder of the Chicago Sun-Times reported last week, the 15-story building, located at 68 E. Wacker Place, could be transformed into a boutique hotel. The secrets of its heyday remain hidden behind an aging limestone facade. But thanks to Open House Chicago, Curbed had a chance to peel back the layers and peer inside this art deco gem. Also included are interior photos of the MDA City Apartments and Seventeenth Church of Christ, Scientist. Stay tuned for parts two and three of our Open House Chicago series, where we spotlight various sites in Hyde Park and Garfield Park.
