Facts

  • In 1973 the Chicago Sun-Times architecture critic named this the city's best building of 1972.
  • In 1999 the lobby and first 3 floors of the façade were redone in Neo-Classical style by Spanish architect Ricardo Bofill.
  • Originally painted a creamy white, the concrete exterior was painted dark brown in the mid-1980's, then restored in 1999 back to the original off-white.
  • In October 1972, the first tree on LaSalle Street south of the river was planted outside this building: one of several London plane trees selected by architect Harry Weese for their resistance to dirt and fumes.
  • The windows project one inch from the façade, causing rainwater to flow around them instead of coursing over the glass.
