Built in stages, this building┐s configuration (combining a massive office block originally called the Lumber Exchange Building with a slender tower addition) reflects the influence of Chicago┐s pioneering zoning ordinance of 1923, which encouraged the building of set-back skyscrapers. Designed in an unusual Portuguese Gothic Revival style, the building also exemplifies the importance of LaSalle Street as Chicago┐s premier historic street for finance and commerce.
