Gotham Lofts 420 S. Clinton Chicago

In 1872, Western Union, a leader in telegraphs, invested in a Chicago manufacturing enterprise, the Western Electric Manufacturing Company. Western Electric had a complex of buildings that was responsible for the manufacture of switchboards, call boxes, fire alarms, and related supplies. During World War II, Western Electric provided nearly half of the country’s radar needs. Army ground and air forces, Navy ships, submarines, and planes, and Marine landing forces all employed Western Electric radar systems. Radar comprised about 50 percent of the company’s war production–the rest going to radio and wire communications equipment designed for war purposes.
In the 1950′s the Congress Expressway was built linking the western suburbs to Chicago.
In the late 1990′s Gotham Lofts Chicago becomes a reality and a new chapter in its history is born.
