Aviation Lofts

Chicago has enjoyed its moniker as “The City that Works” since the days of Mayor Richard J. Daley, and this former airplane engineering school in the South Loop is an interesting reminder of the wide variety of work that was available in Chicago. The building at 138 S Michigan Ave, now known as Aviation Lofts, was originally home to the Curtiss-Wright Aeronautical University, a for-profit college that was a fixture during Chicago’s short-lived glory days as a hub for the aviation industry in the 1920s and 30s. Students could get lectures and hands-on training by fixing up real airplane engines, repairing wings and assembling a few airframes in the South Loop building, which is now home to 49 boutique loft apartments.
