The Icon of Chicago

The black aluminum frame, contrasting with the thick bronze glass, makes this 100-story tower the most recognizable building in Chicago. Completed in 1970, the John Hancock Center remains the epicenter of Chicago's Gold Coast, River North and Streetsville neighborhoods, as well as being one of the most important centers for local, national and international business.

It's more than an office building, however. It includes retail stores, restaurants, banks, a post office and other shipping centers. From the famous observation floor, 360 Chicago, visitors can view four states as well as Lake Michigan. The center is easily accessible by CTA and major expressways (the building has ample parking).
