A former stable now home to The Institute of Puerto Rican Arts and Culture could be designated a landmark.
Built from 1895 – 96 by Frommann and Jebsen, the two-story building, 3015 W Division St, is an architectural gem. It’s the oldest surviving building in Humboldt Park designed in the “old German style of country house architecture,” as noted at the meeting. Back in the day, the building housed horses, wagons and landscaping tools.
It features red pressed brick with a foundation of rusticated field stones and pink brick. The steep roofs are also striking.
