Note of the Week:
The Story A labor of love in a 19th Century Old Town building that artist Edgar Milller and real estate developer Sol Kogen transformed into a masterpiece in the 1930's. Once called Carl Street Studios, the building was originally built as a single family; three story mansion in the 1880’s and was once owned by a Chicago mayor. Later, Carl Street Studios served as Edgar Miller’s art studio. In the building, Miller created unique environments embellished with his own elaborate stained glass windows, carved doors, sculpture, mosaics and frescoes. In 1978, a Chicago businessman, Mark Momolen, fell in love with and purchased the entire building which was a cooperative apartment building. He began a 12 year renovation project converting the building into condominiums. He sold all of the units expect for two, which he lived in and later sold to the current owner. The current owner purchased an additional unit, combining it with the other two to create 5,500 sq ft of art filled space.
