(Chicago, Illinois) My friend and fellow Boy Scout, Kevin Quigley, noted when I posted a story on Detroit’s famous Fisher Building, that it was time I gave Chicago’s equally famous Fisher Building its due. So, Kevin, here are some photos I took during our recent trip to the Windy City of the neo-Gothic landmark building at 343 South Dearborn Street, in the Chicago Loop. According to Wikipedia, The 20-story building was commissioned by paper magnate Lucius Fisher, and was completed in 1896 by D.H. Burnham & Company. A later addition was added in 1907. At the time of its completion, the Fisher Building was one of two buildings in Chicago that was 18 stories tall, the other being the Masonic Building. To this day, the Fisher Building is the oldest 18-story building in Chicago that has not been demolished. Though a project of D.H. Burnham & Company, the original structure was designed by Charles Atwood. The Fisher Building features terra-cotta carvings of various aquatic creatures including fish and crabs. In addition, there are eagles, dragons and mythical creatures depicted on the facade as well. Currently owned and managed by Village Green Management Company, the Fisher Building houses apartments on floors 3-20 and commercial stores on the first and second floors. The Fisher Building was designated a Chicago Landmark on June 7, 1978 and was added to the National Register of Historic Register of Historic Places on March 16, 1976. We’ll be taking another appreciative look at the Fisher Building before attending a concert by the Chicago Symphony Orchestra on Friday and hope to see you admiring the Fisher Building of Chicago.
