Facts

  • The site was directly west of the Consumers Building and south of the Berghoff Restaurant. This part of Quincy Street is now a small cul-de-sac.
  • This was once one of the world's tallest parking garages. It was the largest garage in Chicago at the time of its demolition.
  • Demolished in the early 1960s to make room for the Dirksen Federal Building, which uses the western part of the garage site.
  • The only other enclosed high-rise garage ever built in Chicago is the Harrison Hotel Electric Garage, which is still standing. The same architect designed both.
  • The same architect designed an even taller garage, the Carew-Netherland Garage, which one stood in Cincinnati.
