Facts

  • First major building on Franklin to use that street as its address. Before the late 1980's building boom the street had a reputation for being derelict, and several buildings took their addresses from cross-streets.
  • When built, the building was advertised with a rebus: an ornate number "1", a compass pointing north, and the face of Ben Franklin.
  • This is the second skyscraper at this intersection designed by Joseph Gonzalez of SOM, the other is 303 West Madison at the opposite corner.
