An UNRIVALED PAST
FOUNDED IN LUXURY
In a city with one architectural masterpiece after another and a skyline filled with modern marvels, this was the building that had everyone talking. 208 S. Lasalle, the epitome of 1910s architectural beauty, was an uncommonly noteworthy structure, drawing high interest in and critical acclaim to the less glamorous Financial District. Designed by Chicago's greatest architect, Daniel Burnham, with no expense spared (it was the most expensive building ever built in Chicago at the time), in its neoclassical grandeur and opulence, it lent its banking tenants the unmistakable air of resolute strength and unshakable stability.
