S.026 – Robert W. Roloson Rowhouses remodeling,

3213-3219 Calumet Avenue, Chicago, Illinois

 

S.026.1 – 3213 Calumet Avenue

S.026.2 – 3215 Calumet Avenue

S.026.3 – 3217 Calumet Avenue

S.026.4 – 3219 Calumet Avenue

 

Wright remodeled this set of four rowhouses on Chicago’s near south side in 1894.  Looking left to right (north to south), the individual units are numbered by Prof. Storrer as S.026.1 through S.026.4.  The backs of these properties face Martin Luther King Drive. 

 

The city’s plaque erroneously implies that Wright designed this project from the ground-up.  Photographed on May 10, 2012.
