This is the last of 126 buildings designed by the great American architect Louis Sullivan, considered by many as the creator of the skyscraper. Sullivan was a pioneer of modern architecture, coining the phrase “form follows function”. His former draftsman Frank Lloyd Wright called him “beloved master.”
Nationally-syndicated Tribune architecture critic Blair Kamin described this building as "handsomely restored" with an interior that has "a fresh, modern look that is bracingly contemporary and deeply respectful of the original."
"By far the most powerful presence in the thriving Lincoln Square neighborhood."

“We’ve always been fans of stunning architecture and we love this neighborhood. So we couldn’t believe our luck in finding this gem in 2005. We wanted to do the renovation the right way without cutting corners, so we hired award-winning architects and the most committed contractor to create a light-filled, inspiring work environment. It was truly a labor of love for the whole team.
Now, after running our marketing communications firm here for 13 years, our working model has changed, and it’s time to look for the next owner who will take care of this precious piece of Chicago history.”
