Burnham Center

Posted by
Steven (Chicagoland, United States) on 10 April 2017 in Cityscape & Urban and Portfolio.

From the Archives...

The Burnham Center, originally known as the Conway Building, replaced the Chicago Opera House, which had been built in 1885. The Conway was a real estate project resulting from the estate of Marshall Field, who had died in 1906. Field requested that his $83 million estate be invested in Chicago real estate until his grandson, Marshall Field III, turned fifty (1943). For the most part, Field's estate was invested in existing property, but it was used to fund three major projects: the Conway Building, the Pittsfield Building (1927), and the Field Building (1934).

The building was recognized by the National Park Service with a listing on the National Register of Historic Places on February 9, 1984. The Chicago Title & Trust Co. was a longtime tenet before the 1992 completion of the Chicago Title and Trust Center. Their former headquarters then became known as the Burnham Center.

The Burhnam Center is currently home to the Chicago offices of Grubhub.
