Faits

  • The world's first skyscraper, the Home Insurance Building, stood on the western part of this site and was demolished for this building.
  • The exterior has no ornamental embellishments, making its design uncharacteristically spare even for the art moderne style.
  • The centerpiece of the lobby is a brass elevator location indicator panel in the shape of the building.
  • Completed early in the Great Depression, this was the last office skyscraper built in Chicago until One Prudential Plaza in 1955.
  • The two-story lobby spans the block between Clark and LaSalle Streets, and is crossed near the western end by a footbridge.
  • The top two floors hold the executive dining rooms for the bank, and feature a narrow terrace overlooking the central Loop to the east.
  • The building was originally named the Field Building after prominent Chicago retailer Marshall Field, whose estate developed the structure.
  • On the evening of Monday December 6, 2004, the 29th floor of this building caught fire and burned for over five hours. There were no fatalities.
