Facts

  • Before a renovation in the 1980's, the horizontal bands of the façade were made even more pronounced by recessed balconies. Afterwards these recessed spaces were enclosed and made flush with the building wall.
  • The top of the building was designed for a heliport.
  • In September 2002, Executive House Hotel changed its name to "Hotel 71". The new name comes from its address, 71 East Wacker Drive.
  • Construction of the foundation involved the first use of a Benoto rig in the United States; this machine advances the caisson casings by rotating them back and forth.
  • Although always a hotel building, this was originally conceived as a condominium high-rise.
