THE FLATS CHICAGO: THE LAWRENCE HOUSE

“The Lawrence House has been a cornerstone of life since its construction in the early 20th century. Originally an upscale apartment hotel, this art deco building has been renovated for the modern conveniences of today,” according to the Flats Chicago website.
