209 South Lasalle Street. Built 1885-1888. The Rookery is another Chicago Landmark building, so called because the structure prior to this building, a temporary City Hall and water tank after the fire of 1871, was a favorite roost for pigeons. Frank Llyod Wright remodeled the lobby in 1905. This gorgeous photo of the staircase courtesy of Bob Horsch Gallery.
