Designed by the renown architects Robert C. Berlin and James Gamble Rogers, the Burnham Park Plaza was built in 1914 as the YMCA Hotel. In all, more than 30 million people were housed in the old hotel from the time it opened in 1916 until financial losses forced it to close in 1979. 


In the late 1980s, the building was converted into luxury condominiums and was renamed Burnham Park Plaza, in honor of the legendary Chicago architect and urban planner Daniel Burnham. Since then, the building has remained a beloved fixture of Chicago's South Loop neighborhood, known for its distinctive architecture and prime location. Since 1989, the Burnham Plaza is part of the National Register of Historic Places and is considered a historical landmark in Chicago.

In 2020, Burnham Park Plaza underwent a major renovation to update and modernize the building's amenities and facilities. Today, the property offers residents the perfect blend of historic charm and modern convenience, with a range of luxurious amenities and stunning views of Lake Michigan and the Chicago skyline. 

Our community is proud to carry on the legacy of this historic building and continues to provide our residents with a premier living experience in the heart of Chicago.
