PDF Download: Preservation Chicago’s 2005 Chicago 7 Most Endangered Booklet

One of the most exuberant and well-crafted Art Deco buildings in the central city, 444 N. LaSalle sat directly in the line of fire of Chicago’s ever-expanding high-rise development. A new 45-story apartment building arose one block to the south one year earlier when 444 N. LaSalle was listed as endangered.

Update:The landmarking of 444 N. LaSalle was an early Preservation Chicago triumph.  The complete story of its preservation can be viewed in Success Stories.
