Jeanne and John Rowe Village

Chicago Living

Notable for its structure and the Green Line elevated “L” train that runs behind it, Jeanne and John Rowe Village is uniquely Chicago. Its design, praised by architects and everyone else as one of the “coolest dorms in the nation,” is highlighted by its gray glass and aluminum panels, giving it a distinctive look. Residents are split into three buildings under a shared facade, each providing up-close views of the “L” and the downtown skyline via rooftop decks, all part of the draw of living on Mies Campus.
