Chase Tower Review
This building's graceful swoop—a novelty when it went up—continues to offer an eye-pleasing respite from all the right angles surrounding it. And its spacious, sunken bi-level plaza, with Marc Chagall's mosaic The Four Seasons, is one of the most enjoyable public spaces in the neighborhood. Designed by Perkins & Will and C.F. Murphy Associates in 1969, the building has been home to a succession of financial institutions (its most recent name was Bank One Plaza). Names aside, it remains one of the more distinctive buildings around, not to mention one of the highest buildings in the heart of the Loop.
