Facts

  • Headquarters of Murphy/Jahn Architects. Helmut Jahn's showroom occupies the dome at the building's summit.
  • For the first fourteen years of the building's life it contained a 22-story car lift inside its core. Delivery vehicles would enter on Lower Wacker Drive and ride up to jewelry merchants to make safe transfers.
  • The building is featured in scenes from 2005's "Batman Begins", with Batman perched on one of the turrets rising at the corner of the dome's base.
