  • An untitled Picasso sculpture, made of the same brown steel as the building itself, sits in the plaza. Many people have tried to guess what it is: an angel, a lion, a woman, a horse? But when viewed from the northeast the subject becomes visible: the profile of mayor Richard J. Daley!
  • With 87 feet between columns, the structural bays are so wide that they are often compared to bridges.
  • Each of the building's piers is shaped in plan like a cross, and gets narrower towards the top as it supports less weight.
  • Considered for landmark status as early as 2001, only 36 years after completion.
  • The 26th floor offers a free southern view to anyone willing to undergo the security check. The height at that level is just under 500 feet.
  • The Daley Center's lower level is the hub of Chicago's pedway system, with tunnels extending east, west, and south.
  • Tallest building in Chicago from 1965 to 1969; surpassed by the John Hancock Center.
  • The building's lobby and plaza are frequently used for cultural events and political demonstrations.
  • This is the tallest flat-roofed building in the world below 40 stories, owing to the high ceilings needed for courtrooms.
  • The Richard J. Daley Center is located directly opposite the Cook County Administration Building.
