Condominium living is widespread in Chicago, but this form of housing hasn't been around forever. Cooperatives, which are not as ubiquitous in Chicago, have actually been around longer.

World War I, the Great Depression, World War II and Puerto Rico all played a hand in the creation of cooperatives and condominiums in Chicago. Learn more about both from this article in the Encyclopedia of Chicago.
