Home of Iconic Modernist Architect Takes First Price Chop

New, 5 comments

It's the personal home of the architect who designed some of Chicago's most beloved buildings, but this angular house not been feeling much (if any) love since it listed in March. We're referring to Bruce Graham, who lead a four decade career at Chicago's Skidmore, Owings and Merrill and designed iconic structures such as the Willis Tower, the John Hancock Center and the Inland Steel Building. Graham designed and built this home on Lincoln Park's Cleveland Avenue in 1968, but it underwent an extensive interior renovation in the '90s. The stoic home certainly stands out from the usual greystone or contemporary new construction in the area, but perhaps the asking price is a little tough for buyers to justify. The home listed in March asking $3.8 million but has just knocked $300K off bringing the price to a round $3.5 million.
