Dearborn Center

The building consists of two parts: a lowrise section on State Street, and a square highrise tower to the West on Dearborn. Built on the former site of Montgomery Wards’ flagship department store, part of that building’s foundation was kept and used to support the new tower. The building is designed like a classical column with a heavy base, a projecting cornice at the top, and curved walls on each side. The building’s program consists of an office complex formed by two glass volumes of 35-storey and 11-storey respectively.
