Chicago Landmark

Holabird & Roche, architect
1909- 10
An excellent example of the Chicago School,
an architectural style of international importance
that developed between the 1880s and the
early 1900s. This building was commissioned
by Boston developers Peter and Shepard Brooks,
who built many of Chicago's most innovative
structures. It is noted for its finely detailed
terra cotta ornament, large windows, and
minimal wall surfaces—all traits that epitomize
the early steel-framed skyscraper.
