By the 1920s, Uptown was home to a bustling retail and entertainment district and boasted 11 theaters, 36 hotels and beautiful mansions. Fortunately, many of Uptown’s 1920s architectural gems remain and a lot of restoration and adaptive reuse of properties has occurred in the neighborhood over the past decade.
Join Skyline Council and Uptown United for a barhopping experience like no other. Visit historic sites and revitalization projects in the neighborhood guided by Uptown’s economic development organization, Uptown United and developers CEDARst Companies. Skyline’s very own, Marlise Fratinardo, Chicago Transit Authority’s Architectural Historian, will also give attendees a peek of what’s happening at the Wilson Station Reconstruction Project.
