The Lawrence House, built as a luxury apartment hotel, has been a cornerstone of life since its construction in 1928. The flats design team restored the building's original skylight, mosaic pool tiling, and terrazzo flooring as well as establishing an open lobby that acts as a free co-working space, adjacent to retailers such as a coffee shop and bar. Additional amenities include a backyard open to the public, a rooftop lounge and communal kitchen for residents, and a 6,000-square-foot fitness center including the fully restored pool and a boxing ring. The Lawrence House, located on the northeast corner of Kenmore and Lawrence avenue is the perfect location for an urban commuter. Just blocks away from the red line, our residents can walk, take the train, and bike to the lakefront and have ease of mind with our bike storage. The Lawrence House is a pet-friendly building and is home to cats, dogs, and even a teacup pig.
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.
