Facts

  • The building's site had to be shifted east before its construction when Michigan Avenue was widened. For a while the developer planned to build a building only 12 feet wide, but he finally succeeded in buying the adjacent lot.
  • This was the first high-rise in the area east of Michigan Avenue between the river and Grant Park, and when it was built it enjoyed high visibility.
  • Built on the site of the Jean Baptiste Beaubien homestead. Beaubien Court, which runs underground to the east, is named after this early settler.
