This twenty-story Classic Revival building was built in 1907 and designed by the legendary Daniel Burnham. He is best known for one of the first American skyscrapers, the World’s Columbian Exhibition of 1893, and his Plan of Chicago. The National Building, formerly known as the Commercial National Bank, is the oldest surviving Burnham high-rise in Chicago.
The building was recently redeveloped by Blue Star Properties into a high-end commercial office space. Building Blocks furnished new glass fiber reinforced concrete (GFRC) pieces to replace aging terra cotta during the facade restoration.
