BISSEL STREET

Done in 1970, the remodeling of this building was among the first of the loft re-uses in Chicago.  Originally a bakery, it was occupied by a group of young people that were printing pamphlets, posters, and other documents relating to the conscious revolution of the 1960s.  A new entrance was added serving two art galleries on the lower floors and an apartment on the third floor.


 


In the late 1980s this screened exterior was added to close off the passage between buildings.  Presently the building houses one commercial occupancy and two living units on the second and third floors.
