Posted  28 days ago  in  Guest Blog  by  TAWANI Property Management

1 MIN READ -- Chicago is known for a lot of things - hot dogs, deep dish pizza, the Cubs and Sox, and Al Capone to name a few. But did you know it’s also well known for its rich architectural history? After the Chicago Fire, architects got creative as they rebuilt, introducing a unique concept – the modern skyscraper.

In 1912, Holabird and Roche offered their take on this new architectural form with the Monroe Building. From its inception, the building set a benchmark for premium office spaces, featuring Rookwood tile and ornate iron work, complimenting the terracotta and granite exterior.


From 2006 to 2012, the Monroe Building underwent a thorough and historically accurate restoration, bringing original features back to life while updating offices into modern workspaces with picture-perfect views of Millennium Park and Lake Michigan. While organizations continue to seek spaces that are built to entertain employees with top-tier amenities, unique office space remains a key asset of Loop real estate. Today, the Monroe Building has several options of office types available, including the highly desirable two- level penthouse office space. This breathtaking space features amazing views, an interconnected grand staircase and access to building amenities including the onsite gym. This prime Loop location brings your business to the center of it all: dining, entertainment and transportation convene just steps from your front door. Explore available spaces.

If you want a space for your employees and organization to connect and build on the collaborative energy of downtown and the Loop, the Monroe Building is the place to be.
