The Fisher Building is a 20 storey, 275 foot tall Neo-Gothic point of interest building placed at 343 South Dearborn Street in the Chicago Loop zone of Chicago. Appointed by paper financier Lucius Fisher, the definitive building was finished in 1896 by D.H. Burnham & Company with an expansion later included 1907. Despite the fact that it is a venture of D.H. Burnham & Company, the definitive structure was outlined by Charles Atwood. In 1906, an expansion on the northern side of the building raised it from 18 to 20 stories.
A previous worker of the Burnham firm, Peter J. Weber, outlined and supervised the building's expansion which was finished in 1907. The Fisher Building is characterized with terra-cotta carvings of different sea-going animals incorporating fish and crabs. Likewise, there are falcons, mythical beasts and legendary animals portrayed on the front as well.

Update: Do not rent here. The elevators are only fixed for max 1 month at a time. Currently waiting here with 14 other people trying to get up to my apartment. Someone got stuck in an elevator his week. I have been stuck and retrieved by the fire department. The new management company also loses my bank-mailed rent checks then charges me late fees. Original review: I’ve lived here 4 years. Historic interior. Nice club room. The big issue is the elevators have constant problems leaving a building of almost 200 units with only one small elevator. Sometimes it takes 10-15 min to get from my floor to the sidewalk, which is killer. All four years I’ve been here, there have always been problems with the elevators. I would really love to update my review with 5 stars if / when the elevators are fixed permanently.
I would give less than one star if I could. As a resident of one and a half years, I've found that they do not actually care to keep their residents happy. They are FAR more concerned about gaining new leases than they are about catering to the people who live here. Men also have far more success negotiating with the management than women do, I have MANY examples and testimonials from men and women of this. They've made me LAUGHABLE offers, and often no offers at all, when I've made requests to be compensated for extremely inconvenient issues in the walls of my apartment. I was once offered $300 as compensation for waiting over a month past the promised date of maintenance completion on my wall twice. That's over two months and they wanted to give me $300. At the same time they were advertising $750 for new resident referrals. The offer was an insult, frankly. They DO NOT CARE about their current residents. Once you sign the lease they stop caring about you. My rent is almost $100 more than what they advertise as the maximum on their website for my floor plan and I've had serious and inconvenient issues in that unit 3 times in that same wall. I am seriously considering leaving before my lease is up. DO NOT MOVE HERE. Unless you are a white male or a brand new resident they do not care about you. The new management, city club, is no different. Update: as of 11:30 pm tonight, my wall is dripping water again in the same place that they ASSURED me was fixed. In case anyone is wanting to keep up with this drama, this is the fourth time.
Elevators never work. Online payment barely works and when I asked the staff for help, they sent me the customer service number and said good day figure it out. My apartment is so hot its January 29th and I haven't had to turn my heat on ONCE this winter. I have to submit a service request about once a week for something in my apartment. In the beginning discussions, I was guaranteed that my excess utilities wouldn't surpass $125 a month; I pay about $225 in utilities every month and my heat literally isn't used. They do a great job selling the place to you on your tour. Would never suggest anyone to live here. August can't come soon enough for me!
Absolutely love the building! I couldnt have chosen a better place to live.
This building has a 711 open 24 hours and a coffee shop called Dollop with amazing breakfast and lunch choices that are fresh and healthy not to mention great art on the walls that changes from time to time....then there is Brandos with Karaoke every night or just a 20's Speakeasy on the other east side of the venue with a friendly staff and outdoor seating as well...we can walk to hundreds of great shops restaurants and the lakefront and museums from this spot....I love my life here...lots of free things to do like free concerts in the summertime and free festivals every Holiday...it's a lifestyle destination for highly cultured individuals.
