Faits

  • A bronze relief carving of Fort Dearborn spans the main entrance under a Roman archway.
  • The building has a trapezoidal shape, indented by a high courtyard on the Michigan Avenue side.
  • Located on the site of the Fort Dearborn Blockhouse, part of the first permanent settlement in Chicago other than homesteads and small trading posts.
  • The light court was designed because the developer originally could not secure the property underneath. After construction began it was finally bought, but only the lower 5 floors were filled in.
  • The pavilion on top of the building is similar to the Choragic Monument in Athens, although the architect claimed it was derived more closely from the Stockholm Stadshus.
  • The restoration in 2001 included replacing the cast bronze panels of Fort Dearborn that had been stored at the Chicago Historical Society. The project won the Driehaus Foundation's preservation awards in 2002.
  • The building stands at the forefront of a spectacular cluster of 1920s skyscrapers. Four other buildings within one block have high towers with distinctive tops.
