Facts

  • An advanced construction technique (for 1960-61) enabled the structure to be built with smaller than usual columns: the steel reinforcing bars were welded instead of being tied together with wire, so that each bar in the columns runs continuously from the caissons to the roof.
  • The building is set back 34 feet from the curb on Jackson, breaking up the canyon effect of the street and giving greater visibility to the Board of Trade building next door.
  • The building replaced the 13-story Phoenix Building, one of the first high-rises in Chicago.
