A Retired ComEd Substation in Chicago is Reborn

The original prairie style structure was a ComEd substation built in 1916.

Located on Clark Street in Chicago, it faces Washington Square Park and is adjacent to the Newberry Library.

Architect Michael Hershenson redesigned the interior and added two floors of living space to create a stunning contemporary single family home.

The home includes an outdoor pool, 6 bedrooms, an exercise room and a wine cellar.

There is a green house on the top level.
