Riviera Motor Sales Company Building

The City of Chicago Housing and Economic Development department has proposed Landmark status for the Riviera Motor Sales Company Building located at 5948-60 N. Broadway (at Elmdale). The building, which was designed by architect Bernard Kurzon and built in 1925-1926 originally to house a Chrysler dealership is one of the most attractive buildings along “automobile row.” Currently occupied by MB Bank and housing apartments on the second floor, the building features expansive glass storefront windows, an ornate and finely detailed interior and a Venetian Gothic-style terra cotta exterior.
