Featured Building: Fordham

FordhamChicagoExterior.jpg

Looking over the Holy Name Cathedral on a tree-lined street, just steps away from Chicago's Magnificent Mile, The Fordham melds the charisma of vintage elegance with a host of cosmopolitan amenities. The elegant 50 story tower is home to one to three bedroom condominiums, six 11th floor town homes and ten exclusive penthouses. The Fordham is one of the most impressive residential buildings in, not only River North, but all of Chicago.


Front Entry at The Fordham
The upper-class Cathedral District on the north side of the Chicago River is home to The Fordham and its upscale residents. The neighborhood is a mix of old world charm and modern cosmopolitan life with 19th century churches and 21st century high rises existing side by side. In addition to Holy Name, the area is home to St. James Cathedral as well as the Fourth Presbyterian Church, a Gothic structure reminiscent of a monastery.


The area is also a few blocks away from Washington Square where one finds the Newberry Library and the Scottish Rite Cathedral (once the famous Unity Church but now a Masonic facility).
