The Birthplace of Printer’s Row

The Donohue was built in 1883 by Michael A. Donohue and was the first printing house constructed in the area. In that regard, the building represents the birthplace of Printer’s Row.

Printing House Loft Architecture

And the building is reportedly one of the best examples of printing house loft architecture in the country.

The original building is eight stories high and was designed by Julius Speyer in the Romanesque revival style. A style exemplified in the large masonry entrance arch with columns and smooth piers.

A second “first” for the building came in 1979 when it was converted to residential loft condominiums. Reportedly it was the first old factory in Chicago to be converted to residential use. It became a landmark building in 1996.

Living And Working At Donohue Lofts

Today many of the lofts here remain live-work which makes for a completely unique feeling not found in most other loft buildings in Chicago.
