Facts

  • The building consists of 2 parts: a lowrise section on State Street, and a square highrise tower to the west on Dearborn.
  • Constructed on the former site of Montgomery Wards' flagship department store. Part of that building's foundation was kept and used to support the new tower.
  • The showpiece of the office lobby is a limited-edition cast of the Winged Victory of Samothrace, one of the world's most famous sculptures.
  • The building is designed like a classical column with a heavy base, a projecting cornice at the top, and curved walls on each side.
  • The building's site was vacant for about 17 years, during which two super-tall buildings (Dearborn Center 1 & Dearborn Center 2) were proposed here.
  • This was the first building in Chicago to use a raised-floor pressurized plenum system, allowing for air to be pumped in through the floors for individuals to control their climates using floor diffusers.
  • The basement levels were constructed to allow for the future opening of a major transit station, connecting the Blue & Red subway lines.
  • This is the second Chicago skyscraper by Catalan architect Ricardo Bofill, following the R.R. Donnelley Building.
