    Peter J. Nitto Sr., 65, a North Shore architect, designed shopping malls, commercial buildings and thousands of Chicago area six-flats. The latter include six apartment complexes that extend for more than three miles along the east side of the Tri-State Tollway in Glenview.

    Mass for Mr. Nitto, a resident of Wilmette, will be said at 10 a.m. Monday in St. Joseph Catholic Church, 1747 Lake Ave., Wilmette. He died Wednesday at home.

    "He was unique and versatile," said his son Peter Jr. "He was not a suit and tie man. He operated alone and out of his home, but he designed individual homes, apartment complexes and even a skyscraper. One architectural magazine article called him 'king of the six-flats.' "

    Mr. Nitto, a native of Dwight, moved with his family to Wilmette and was graduated from New Trier High School. During World War II, he was in the quartermaster's corps. He received a degree in architectural engineering from the University of Illinois in 1949.

    He designed more than 100 complexes, according to his son. One of the early ones was Ridge Heights in Highland Park, the world's first all-electric subdivision.

    The complexes along the Tri-State Tollway include: Bay Colony, Shorewood Village, Glengrove, Deer Love, Castellian Courts and Salem Walk. Another complex, Lorlyn Apartments in West Chicago, included 506 units and represented the largest one that had ever been started in the western suburbs.

    "You can usually tell his work," his son said. "They are three levels, with the top coming down in front in the form of rustic shingles."

    He was one of seven architects chosen to exhibit his work in the Long Grove Walk of Homes.

    Mr. Nitto designed the Bank of Palatine as well as buildings in Albuquerque, including a skyscraper. His most recent work has been developing malls such as the Marina Shopping Center in Oswego.

    Survivors, besides his son, include two daughters, Susan Bennett and Nancy Onderdonk; two other sons, Christopher and Matthew; his mother, Lida; a sister; and four grandchildren.
