Trip 59: Bryn Mawr Apartment Hotel

Date: August 6, 2010
Trip: 59
Landmarks Visited: 1
Landmarks To-Date: 159
Landmarks Remaining: 194

Friday after work I took a quick bike ride north to the 5500 block of Kenmore Avenue to see the Bryn Mawr Apartment Hotel. The building is a pale brick highrise with terra cotta ornamentation. The landmark plaque notes that at one time Chicago was a leading manufacturer of architectural terra cotta.

The building is still residential with a popular Francesca's restaurant on the first floor. I've eaten there myself and definitely recommend it.
