The Del Prado, built in 1918, is one of a group of distinctive buildings that mark the gateway from Lake Shore Drive into Hyde Park in Chicago. The buildings comprise a National Register of Historic Places district.
Mac Apartments is currently restoring the exterior and interior of the Del Prado, and will have studio to two-bedroom apartments available for lease beginning in August, 2011.
Architect David Gwinn of the Silliman Group is overseeing the restoration and is our tour guide in this sponsored video, in which we get a first look at the Studio Gang-designed apartment layouts, and the stylish kitchens and baths.
There is still extensive work underway on the exterior of the building and in the grand public spaces, so it was a bit of a shock to see that the 10th floor apartments appear to be move-in ready.
