These two blocks, which feature uniform heights and building setbacks, exemplify the type of low-scale, high-density residential development that occurred near the city's fashionable lakefront in the late-19th century.

Most of the district's 47 buildings were constructed between 1894 and 1910. They feature examples of various architectural styles from the period, including the Gothic Revival, Queen Anne, and Richardsonian Romanesque. The Theurer-Wrigley House , a designated Chicago Landmark, is located at the eastern end of the district.
