Republic Building (Chicago)
Architect: Holabird & Roche
Location: 209 S. State Street, at State and Adams
Built: Between 1902 and 1905
Demolished: 1961

“With its crisp lines, light piers, and large windows, Holabird & Roche’s Republic Building on State Street marked the last stage in the development of the tall commercial building of the Chicago School. It was originally 12 stories high when it opened in 1905, but in 1909 it was raised to 19. Still structurally sound and financially viable, the Republic was demolished in 1961 to make way for the Home Federal Savings and Loan Association Building. (Lost Chicago, David Lowe, page 147)
