The Belden Stratford is an apartment building and former hotel in the Lincoln Park neighborhood of Chicago. It is located across the street from the Lincoln Park Zoo and Lincoln Park Conservatory.[2]

The structure was built in the 1920s and renovated between 1989 and 1990.[3] Notable guests over the years included Louis Armstrong and Gloria Swanson.[4]

In 2011 IRMCO Properties & Management, which owned and managed the Belden Stratford, sold the property to the Laramar Group. Laramar planned to renovate the building and convert it over to all rental apartments.
