In the 19th century, Chicago built the world’s first modern skyscraper. In the 20th century, we created a world-renowned skyline. And today, Chicago aspires to make that skyline the most efficient on the planet. – Mayor Rahm Emanuel

Building Description

440 South LaSalle Street was developed in 1984 in the former site of the LaSalle Street commuter rail station. The project is composed of a 40 story class A office tower and an 87,000 square foot Annex that originally housed the Midwest Stock Exchange. Clad in Imperial Red Granite, the Project now spans the newly renovated Congress Parkway where a drab railroad viaduct once stood. The Annex’s distinctive glass arches that welcome commuters and visitors to the Financial District are reminiscent of the previous rail station attached and now located just south of the property. Located on the northwest corner of LaSalle Street and Congress Parkway, the office tower offers dramatic views of the Chicago Skyline, Millennium and Grant parks, Navy Pier, Soldier Field and many of Chicago’s other attractions.
