Jameson Real Estate is pleased to exclusively market a rare opportunity to lease and build-to-suit within this historic Chicago landmark located in Chicago's vibrant Streeterville neighborhood, in the heart of Northwestern Memorial Hospital medical district, and steps away from Michigan Avenue. This truly unique Queen Anne and Romanesque style building consists of approximately 12,118 total divisible square feet that can be built to suit for almost any use. Built in 1885 by Edwin F. Getchell who purchased the land from the estate of William B. Ogden, Chicago's first mayor, then hired prominent architecture firm, Burling & Whitehouse, to design the original four-level property. The property was later purchased and inhabited by renowned American portrait painter George Peter Alexander Healy, most famous for his portrayals of eminent persons including Abraham Lincoln, John Quincy Adams, Ulysses Grant, and The Peacemakers. In the 1970's the north end addition was constructed to include such amenities as the outdoor deck, garden, and 3-car garage. The Property is currently vacant and available for immediate occupancy. Given its proximity to Northwestern Memorial Hospital and surrounding medical district, it's ideal for any use within the medical field, but also prime for all commercial office and/or retail use. It would of course also make for a truly magnificent single-family home and/or a multi-family dwelling. 212 East Ontario is conveniently situated between North Fairbanks Court and North St. Clair Street, just one block east of Michigan Avenue, steps from many of Chicago's finest restaurants, hotels, retail, entertainment, as well as all major transportation hubs.
