History of our Building
The current DANK Haus building was designed by architect Paul Gerhardt, son in law of the Chicago Alderman and architect of Cook County Hospital, Lane Technical High School, Von Steuben High School, and the L&H Company Building. It was originally built for the Three Links Association, a jolly fellows club.
DANK Chicago North purchased the building at 4740 N. Western Ave., Chicago, IL.
The façade improvement was completed through generous donations from members and the community. The much-needed improvement shined a new light on the building and the streetscape in the Lincoln Square community.
