Landmark Status Proposed for Clark-Netsch House
Mayor's Press Office 312.744.3334
The Clark-Netsch House in Lincoln Park would be designated as an official Chicago landmark under a recommendation forwarded to City Council today by the Commission on Chicago Landmarks.
Located at 1700 N. Hudson Ave., the modern, two-story home was built in 1974 as the residence of its designer and architect, Walter Netsch, and his wife, Illinois politician Dawn Clark Netsch.
Featuring progressive, geometric structural patterns, the building is the only residential building Netsch designed throughout an illustrious career that produced many globally renowned institutional and commercial structures.
The landmark designation would protect all exterior elevations of the building, as well as its overall spatial volume.
