“Nearly a full century ago in 1922, the Chicago Tribune launched a contest for bids to build its new home. More than 250 architectural firms from around the world—from Australia to Cuba to Luxembourg to Mexico—submitted proposals. The win went to Howells & Hood, the New York duo behind Rockefeller Center who became renown for their Art Deco style.
“Completed in 1925, the neo-Gothic Tribune Tower at 435 N. Michigan Ave. housed the newspaper and its affiliates until 2018. You might say it’s now been given a massive edit: going from offices to 162 luxury residences, as well as retail and restaurant spaces, all built to exceed Chicago’s sustainability standards.
“The 36 stories will include condos ranging from one to four bedrooms, with the largest units, called ‘architectural masterpieces,’ taking over some full floors. In the 24 ‘architectural masterpieces,’ expect to see soaring ceiling heights as well as preserved original details and elements gussied up to be even more beautiful. Prices for those range from $2 million to $8 million.
“And that historic Chicago Tribune sign? It’s staying.” (O’Leary, 8/24/20)
