Historic Living in Uptown
The Synagogue is a newly renovated, historic building at Kenmore and Argyle. Situated only blocks away from the lakefront as well as infamous restaurants on the “Asia on Argyle” stretch serving hot pho, spring rolls, dim sum, sweets and baked goods, and more. Built in the 1920s, The Synagogue served as a place of worship, education, and community until its closure in 2008. FLATS carefully preserved many of the architectural details such as arched windows and stained glass while donating many historic artifacts to the greater community.
Live in Uptown
What originated as a summer resort town in the early 1900s, Uptown has long been a destination for entertainment and leisure on the lakefront at the expansive Montrose Beach. Neighborhoods within Uptown include Buena Park, Sheridan Park, Argyle Street (also known as Asia on Argyle or Little Vietnam), Margate Park, and the Uptown Square historic district. Theatres include the Riviera, the Aragon Ballroom, Green Mill Cocktail Lounge, and soon-to-be renovated historic Uptown Theatre. Access to the CTA red line, city buses, and Lake Shore Drive offer easy transportation options to the city at large.
Parks include the lakefront with trails, Cricket Hill (known for its annual kite festival), and the Clarendon Park Community Center. Montrose Beach has a corresponding dog park where your four-legged friends can run free and perhaps swim a few laps.
