Rare Find: 3-Bed Co-op in the Keck-Gottschalk-Keck Apts

New, 15 comments

An early Keck & Keck masterpiece—the granddaddy if you will—the 1937 International Style Keck-Gottschalk-Keck Apartments was built just two years into the 45-year partnership of brothers George Fred and William Keck. A Chicago landmark since 1994, the building is named, in part, for professor Louis Gottschalk, who called it home. Significantly, the Keck brothers took up residence here as well. The unit for sale is a top floor (third) three-bedroom co-op asking $350K. The unit has pristine hardwood floors, a wood-burning fireplace, and a ton of quirky windows. Coolest of all, the terrace is a mesmerizing 7' x 27'! There's also roof rights, a garage, and a communal dark room for all you 35mm holdouts—not your everyday amenity. Assessments are $691/mo but include almost everything.
