Loughborough Avenue provides a major connection for Carondelet with the rest of the city, as one of the few streets to be bridged over the Interstate. The area where it meets Michigan Avenue is dotted with a number of public and civic buildings, including the Carnegie library and the fraternal temple shown here. Nearby are the Blow School, a YMCA, and several particularly fine houses.

The South End Masonic Temple is slated for demolition as of March 2011. The space will be used for an expanded parking lot for the library, which currently has off-street parking only in the alley.
