Alta Vista Terrace was one of Samuel Eberly Gross’s last real estate developments. Inspired by a visit to Europe, Gross and architect Joseph C. Brompton, re-created the character of London row houses on Alta Vista Terrace. The street wall is designed as one unit but with an array of contrasts in color, rooflines, and style. There are twenty row houses on each side of the street. whose designs are mirrored diagonally across the block. All the row houses are two-story building of Roman brick except the four three-story graystones in the center. In 1971 Alta Vista Terrace was designated Chicago’s first historic district.
