Looks like a page out of The Great Gatsby....nice to see they preserved it. My favorite time period for American architecture.

It is truly a behemoth with over 2.5 million square feet, back when it was built Chicago was the nation's mail-order capital seeing that Sears, Mongomery Ward, and Speigel all shipped their goods through here. Also, the Eisenhower Expressway goes right through the building.
Here are some before and after pics
