Chicago, Illinois

CNA Plaza

Because of its bright red color, this is one of the most prominent buildings on Chicago's skyline. Not only the exterior but also many interior features are bright red, including the columns and escalators in the lobby. CNA Plaza was built as a southern addition to the shorter CNA Plaza North. The 12-story Steinway Hall formerly occupied the southeastern part of this site. Construction Finished: 1972; Stories: 44; Maximum Height: 183m (600ft)

175 N. Harbor Dr.

6 North Michigan Building

Not quite the building it once was, Six North Michigan Avenue is still an essential part of Chicago's beloved Michigan Avenue cliff. At first glance it appears to be any of a dozen interchangeable buildings from the South Loop, but upon closer inspection, it has some merit. In spite of being more than one hundred years old, Six North Michigan retains some of its stately features. A tall central shaft with three columns of wide windows are flanked by two lesser wings of narrower windows. The arrangement fools the eye into thinking the north and south portions are set back from the main facade. Built in 1899. Tallest building in Chicago from 1899 to 1922, surpassed by the Wrigley Building.

The ParkShore

Built in 1991; designed by Barancik Conte and Assoc. Modeled by Holly Alcorn

The Alexander Hamilton U.S. Custom House

The Alexander Hamilton U.S. Custom House (originally U.S. Custom House) is a building in New York City, built 1902 - 1907 by the federal government to house the duty collection operations for the port of New York. It is located near the southern tip of Manhattan, next to Battery Park, at 1 Bowling Green. The building is now the home of the New York branch of the National Museum of the American Indian.

One New York Plaza

In 1959 the City of New York attempted to acquire through eminent domain the land under this development as part of the Battery Park Urban Renewal Area. The plan involved consolidating several blocks into a "superblock" for public housing. When that plan fell through the city hoped to entice the New York Stock Exchange to relocate to the property. However the owner of the property - the firm of Atlas McGroth - successfully sued to retain their land, claiming they were more than willing to develop the site privately. The building is 640 feet (195 meters) tall with 50 floors. The building was designed by William Lescaze & Assocs. and Kahn & Jacobs. The facade was designed by Nevio Maggiora, consisting of a boxlike "beehive" pattern with the windows recessed within, made of aluminum-clad wall elements resembling a type of thermally actived elevator button popular at the time of construction.
