THE LOOP — The Chicago Architecture Foundation unveiled its list of hundreds of buildings that will be open to the public in October as a part of its annual Open House Chicago event.

The tours are set to take place across the city and a few suburbs the weekend of Oct. 14.

There are 107 buildings that weren't part of last year's edition of the event.

Among those sites are:

• Half Acre Beer Co.'s brewery, brewpub and beer garden at 2050 W. Balmoral Ave., which opened last weekend.

• The Robey hotel in Wicker Park, which opened in the neighborhood's art deco Northwest Tower building at 2018 W. North Ave., in November.

• The 22-story Powhatan apartments at 4950 S. Chicago Beach Drive, which was built in 1929.

• The Robie House in Hyde Park at 5757 S. Woodlawn Ave. The Frank Lloyd Wright house is traditionally only open on paid tours.

• Garfield Park's New Mount Pilgrim Missionary Baptist Church, formerly a Roman Catholic parish, at 4301 W. Washington Blvd.

Check out the full list of buildings that will be open during Open House Chicago here. Not all sites will be open both days and photography isn't always permitted inside.
