Neighborhood: South Loop
Overview

Once again, Daniel Burnham struck it big, designing one of the most original and whimsical buildings in the city. In this case he truly lived up to his motto, "Make no little plans, they have no magic to stir man's blood." The building's neo-Gothic ornamentation reflects its name. Fish, shells and other ocean-themed designs can be found on the lower stories. For unknown reasons, this treasure seems to be much overlooked by tourists and locals. Perhaps it is because it is off the main part of the Loop, but it is worth a visit. Call the Chicago Architecture Foundation at +1 312 922 3432 for tour information.
