A call to landmark the Kogen-Miller and Glasner Studios in Chicago.
Recently, the Kogen-Miller and Glasner Studios building was featured in a cover article in the Chicago Sun-Times on December 26, 2022, unfortunately concerning litigation stemming from allegations of improper management and neglect by the controlling majority owners of the property’s condo association. A second article in the same edition, The Glasner Studio, a true Chicago gem, accurately describes the building as an incredibly significant and unique architectural achievement in the City of Chicago, worth protecting.At the very least, sign the change.org petition. If possible, write a letter. Information on writing a letter to the Landmarks Commission
The Kogen-Miller Studios and the Glasner Studio make up one of the most remarkable apartment buildings in the City of Chicago, the State of Illinois, and the United States, and they are more than deserving of landmark designation to ensure their long-term protection.
Add your name and voice to the petition as we call on the Commission on Chicago Landmarks to designate the property at 1734 North Wells Street an official Chicago Landmark.
I visited the Studios in 2015 and the place is amazing. So very worth preserving and making available to the public someway, anyway. There is an album of 47 photos from that visit on my Flickr site - Kogen Miller Studios, Chicago IL
Just one example from the Flickr album -
