Designed by the architectural firm of Lowenberg and Lowenberg and built in 1969, 1700 is the tallest building south of the Loop. 1700 converted from rental apartments to condominiums in 1994 and was the largest Hyde Park condominium conversion at that time. The building consists of 369 units, with studio, one, two and three-bedroom condominiums. Many of the units offer breathtaking views of the Chicago lakefront, Jackson Park and the Museum of Science and Industry.
1700 is a favorite among neighborhood locals in Hyde Park. The building offers many amenities including 24/7 door staff, onsite assistant engineer, exercise room and sundeck.
