1989 – Leo Burnett Building, Chicago, Illinois

Architect: Kevin Roche John Dinkeloo & Associates



The Leo Burnett Building is widely considered one of the top ten buildings in the Chicago downtown area and is a prominent and highly recognizable component of the city’s skyline. Built in 1989, the property contains 1.1 million square feet of rentable space throughout its 50 floors. The vertical stainless steel bars that divide the windows are nods to the classic “Chicago window” and also reflect light to brighten up a potentially dark building.
