Chicago’s Motor Row neighborhood is recognized by the city of Chicago as an official Historic Landmark District. During the first part of the 20th century over 100 automobile manufacturers and dealers established dealerships on Michigan Ave. between 14th and 24th Streets including Hudson, Marmon, Thomas Flyer, Cadillac, Premier, and F.I.A.T. Many significant buildings in a variety of styles remain in the once again thriving district known as Motor Row.
The owners of MRB left no stone unturned rehabbing this beautiful facility and in the process won a 2015 “Chicago Landmark Preservation Award.”
The neighborhood also was home to one of Chicago’s several “Record Rows,” including the studios of world famous Chess Records and its competitor VeeJay Records. The former Chess Records location now houses “Willie Dixon’s Blues Heaven Foundation”, http://www.bluesheaven.com/ along with Motor Row Brewing it continues as anchor in the neighborhood.
