Facts

  • The building combines 5 major uses:  a seven-story atrium shopping mall; a Four Seasons Hotel; office space in the tower's lower section; condominiums on the higher floors; and one of the city's largest parking garages.
  • Commonly referred to as the "Bloomingdale's Building" because of the shopping mall's anchor tenant.
  • Topped with 4 ornamental lanterns, which change color for the Christmas season.
  • The original design was a postmodern homage to the Vienna Secessionist style of architect Otto Wagner, with a wide arched roof.
  • The exterior is sheathed in limestone and light reflective green glass.
  • The building consists of a concrete frame built on top of a steel skeleton. Since the building's material switches midway up, the first cranes had to be taken down for two weeks while new cranes for concrete were installed.
