Faits

  • The striking design features white travertine brackets at each corner.
  • This is the only skyscraper in Chicago by Minoru Yamasaki, the architect of the World Trade Center in New York.
  • Until the late 1990s this stood out as the only highrise building in a wide area northwest of the downtown skyline.
  • The Montgomery is the only high-rise in Chicago besides The Plaza on Dewitt and 500 North Michigan with any significant use of travertine in the facade.
  • Original plans called for a fountain and reflecting pool in the plaza.
  • The facade between the brackets was originally a black aluminum curtain wall. During the 2004 renovation, this was replaced by silver aluminum.
  • During the renovation balconies were added to the narrow lengths of the facade on the east and west sides.
  • The strong corners were designed to free up the interiors on each floor, creating a wide open space without interrupting walls.
  • Before the central sections of the facade were replaced with silver metal, the building resembled Internationales Handelszentrum Berlin in Berlin.
  • The structure is braced at all four corners by concrete shear wall cores (underneath the travertine), making it impossible to install corner windows.
  • In 2004 this building and 6 North Michigan - both former headquarters of Montgomery Ward's - underwent major reconstruction for conversion into condominiums.
