HISTORY OF 1334 W CORNELIA
1334 W. Cornelia was constructed in 1911 in a section of Lake View distinct to this day for stone and brick 3- and 2-flats built on wider 30-foot lots.
The original oak breakfronts in all three units of 1334 illustrate the quality material and workmanship of the builder.
The most evident feature made possible by the 30-foot lot (compared to the more common 25), is wider bedrooms and more daylight between adjacent buildings.
When seller purchased the building in 1984, many structures were still occupied by widows with deep roots in the neighborhood. They were proud of their homes which, in some cases, were built by their husbands.
In this six-block area, instead of tearing down, it is more common to see the original buildings preserved or, where possible, expanded.
Lake View is Chicago’s largest community by area with a population of close to 100,000 residents. It is made up of a diverse cross section of young professionals, families and college students. Culturally, Lake View is home to many unique shops, artists, dining and theaters. At the heart of Lake View is the neighborhood of Wrigleyville, one of Chicago’s most popular neighborhoods to live, work and play. Wrigleyville is the home of Wrigley Field and The Chicago Cubs. All around the ballpark you’ll find many restaurants, bars and entertainment venues like The Music Box Theatre and Cabaret Metro.
