The Sutherland was built as a hotel and briefly converted to a military hospital. Its most famous incarnation, however, was as a music venue frequented by some of the greats of jazz music.
The Sutherland, 4659 S Drexel Blvd in Hyde Park / Kenwood, was recently converted to luxury studio, one- and two-bedroom apartments.
As part of the conversion the common areas were expanded to include a resident lounge, a billiards room adjacent to the laundry and a fitness room. Free Wi-Fi service is available in the lounge areas. The lobby, which has been restored to its original size and character, also hosts a 24-hour concierge service for residents.
