Facts

  • Each floor is 15,000 square feet in area.
  • When completed, this was the tallest all-welded steel frame in the world.
  • This building has a strong presence in the Civic Center area. The architect varied the stern Miesian International Style formula with the use of white marble, precast concrete panels, and lacy vertical grillwork.
  • The recessed glass lobby rises to a height of 25 feet, and creates a small plaza around the base which includes public art.
  • Floors 27 and 28 are entirely mechanical, and the building is topped with a prominent mechanical penthouse that includes 4 more floors that also serves as an architectural rooftop element which can be lit different colors by night.
