Once a mid-sized manufacturing city, Aurora outgrew that industrial feel as it acquired some impressive architectural gems, including several Frank Lloyd Wright and Mies van der Rohe buildings. The city also has over 50 Sears Catalog Homes and seven Lustron all-steel homes. Its glamorous art deco Paramount theater in downtown Aurora, designed by Rapp and Rapp, opened in 1931 and was the first building outside of Chicago to have air conditioning. In 1908, Aurora adopted the nickname City of Lights because in 1881 it became one of the first in the United States to have an all electric street lights.
From log cabins to luxury mansions, Glen Ellyn has seen a lot of changes since it was first settled in 1833. The village began to grow after the Galena and Chicago Union Railroad finished construction in 1849, and today the area around the railroad is still the center of town. In the past decade, Glen Ellyn has updated its downtown with a floral clock and plaza to mark the millennium.
Congratulations to Steve Baird! Our President and CEO was recognized in the 2018 Swanepoel Power 200 (SP200) ranking of the most powerful and influential people in real estate. http://bit.ly/2DgFPqc

In 2016 Baird & Warner agent Kevin Rutherford sold a 1949 Lustron House in Wilmette, IL. with stainless-steel walls, original flooring, and fixtures still in excellent shape. 

Lustron houses are prefabricated enameled steel houses developed after World War II to solve the shortage of homes for returning GIs. Twelve tons of steel went into building each home, and it took about a week to assemble from 3,300 pieces.

2,500 were originally built, and today, about 2,000 of these houses still remain.

Arlington Heights may be best known to outsiders for its race track, but this village also has a rich multicultural history and a wealth of historic houses — including several Sears Catalog homes. As the name suggests, these were complete houses sold as a kit for customers to assemble. This French-style “Barrington” model was assembled in 1927 and still has its original hardwood floors, glass door knobs, and ceiling fixtures.

The Oak Park-River Forest community is full of architectural gems designed by Tallmadge & Watson, George Washington Maher, E.E. Roberts, and of course, Frank Lloyd Wright. One of Wright’s earliest examples of a full Prairie Style home is Heurtley House, which shows patterns Wright would repeat in many of his greatest works. Although it’s been modified over the years, Heurtley House was finally designated a National Historic Landmark on February 16, 2000. Interested in seeing more? OPRF has plenty of walking tours. (We recommend waiting until it’s warmer out.)

Along with excellent colleges, a great sense of community, and nationally registered historic architecture, Wheaton is also an easy commute from Chicago — something its founders planned strategically. When the Wheaton brothers first settled the area around 1838, they offered the budding railroad free right-of-way and gave land around the station to those who were willing to build immediately. The community got its name from rail workers posting a sign “Wheaton Depot,” around the construction.
With luxury highrises among shuttered factories and warehouses, Chicago’s West Loop is a study in contrasts. Over the years the neighborhood’s had an explosion of sleek new restaurants opening on Restaurant Row (Randolph Street and Fulton Market) transforming it from a gritty industrial area to trendy and luxurious.
TBT the roaring '20s! Construction on Baird & Warner's cooperative apartment building at 1120 N. Lake Shore Drive was well underway. Baird & Warner built it, sold apartments, and managed the building. More on this next TBT. Stay tuned.
It might be a little chilly out, but our city is still gorgeous.

One of the best parts of Chicago’s Loop is how quickly (depending on signal clearance) the el can take you around the city. Any guesses about which stop this is near?
TBT to Baird & Warner's office pre-WWI at 90 S. LaSalle St. The neighborhood's changed a bit since then.
As you wander through Lincoln Park, you’ll find one of the city’s oldest and most iconic statues — a stone’s throw from the @chicagomuseum, on the northern border of Chicago’s Gold Coast district. Completed in 1887, the 12-foot bronze statue of Abraham Lincoln by Augustus Saint-Gaudens was described as the most important sculpture of Lincoln from the 19th century.
Although it dates back to the 1830s, Palatine wasn’t officially founded until 1866, when the Chicago and Northwest Railway (today’s Metra UP-NW) came to town. Of that bustling early settlement the George H. Clayson house is one of the few remaining buildings older than 125 years. With its Second Empire style and Mansard roof, the house is now a museum and a nod to the pioneer spirit of Palatine’s past.
From dying it green on St. Patty’s to strolling down the riverwalk, Chicagoans have a deep connection to the Chicago River. Although polluted parts of it caught fire regularly back in the day, we’ve cleaned up our act! Today, you’ll find some of the most breathtaking views of Chicago, especially from one of the famed riverboat tours.
