Chicago Board of Trade Building
The Chicago Board of Trade Building is a 44-story, 604-foot Art Deco skyscraper located in the Chicago Loop, standing at the foot of the LaSalle Street canyon
Holding court at the south end of LaSalle St., the Chicago Board of Trade Building presides over Chicago’s financial district. The regal 45-story skyscraper is the epitome of Art Deco styling.
It was designed and constructed during the heyday of Art Deco in Chicago by John A. Holabird and John Wellborn Root Jr., themselves second-generation architectural royalty. The prolific pair’s structure confidently occupies its prestigious site while boldly communicating its contribution to the Chicago economy.
