Assumption School

319 W. Erie Street, Chicago

This Beaux Arts-style structure, which was built in 1899 by St. Frances Cabrini to serve the Near North Side’s immigrant community, is being converted to residential condominiums. The structure had been threatened with demolition before it was designated a Chicago Landmark in 2003, following placement on Landmarks Illinois’ Chicagoland Watch List.
