Tribune Tower, Chicago (July, 2011)

 
The Chicago Tribune Tower is one of my favorites in the city.  It is a 462 foot tall office building with 631,000 sqft.  What makes it so iconic is its location on the southern end of the Magnificent Mile, right where Michigan Avenue reaches the Chicago River.  (The plaza next to it is also the site of first residence of Chicago.)

Not only is it a pretty cool building but it has a few unique features that make it worth checking out.  More on my favorite feature later, but one you can kinda see in the photo is that right on the sidewalk are some big first floor windows.  That's where the WGN radio studio is and you can watch the live boardcast.
