The 1886 Rookery Building (LaSalle and Adams Streets) designed by Burnham and Root with a lobby remodeled by Frank Lloyd Wright is a Chicago landmark.
Statement of Significance (as of designation - May 15, 1975): Completed in 1886 at a cost of $1.5 million, this 11 story building is a prime example in the development of multi-story commercial structures. Its use of skeletal construction and fine ornamental detail place it in the mainstream of "Chicago School" architecture. In 1905, its lobby was remodeled by Frank Lloyd Wright.
