  • Unless you work here or know someone who does (which won't be forever because they're turning the place into condos), you can only enter the lobby. But it's really nice and has ornate stonework with words etched in as well. The outside is interesting: stones from all over the world are embedded into the exterior walls. Go to the back near the dock and parking lot and you'll see the cornerstone circa 1920.

  • Such a beautiful building. Sad that it's now condominiums. And no longer the grand Chicago Tribune. Which is also no longer so grand. Sigh.

  • Make sure you walk around to notice all beautiful stones from different countries and states. Neo-gothic building is something fresh!

  • This building and nearby buildings are phenomenal. It's like going back in time when detail and passionate architecture was being built.

  • Lovely architecture and stunning views from the tower. Home of the Chicago Tribune, recently purchased by developers who will convert it into apartments, hotel and offices. This iconic neogotihic building is part of Chicago's history. I highly recommend you visit this building.
