Built during the height of the Jazz Age, the Shoreland was one of Chicago’s most glamorous hotels.

Studio Gang’s renovation and restoration of this storied structure transforms the Shoreland into a contemporary residential tower for today’s city dwellers.

Along with reconfiguring and upgrading the building’s 13 floors to include 330 apartment units, Studio Gang’s design reactivates the Shoreland’s public areas, creating exciting spaces for public events and activities while preserving residents’ privacy.

Outdoor terraces for public use, as well as balconies for residents, bring life to the building’s ground level and third floor.
