Jewelers Building model 35 East Wacker Drive

1:2000 scale miniature paper model, about 3 inches tall

Originally known as the Jeweler's Building, this 1926 skyscraper was one of the last in Chicago built in Beaux Arts style. Despite the historicist terracotta ornamentation, the building was equipped with one of the nation's largest internal parking garages, with an entirely automatic elevator system, ensuring the highest security for the jeweler tenants. The domed cupola on the 40th floor once featured a lounge and restaurant with panoramic views of the city.
