Wrigley Building

Wrigley Building

Often referred to as “Chicago’s Big Ben,” this gleaming white terra cotta “wedding cake” became the city’s first landmark skyscraper north of the Chicago River. Since 1921, the building—designed by Charles Beersman—has been floodlighted at night to emphasize its architectural role as a beacon to Chicago. The clock tower is inspired by Giralda Tower in Sevilla, Spain.
