The Inland Steel Building located at 30 W. Monroe was the first tall building (19 Stories) to be constructed in Chicago after the Great Depression.

The building has seven vertical columns that are encased in steel and is a good example of modernist architecture and is a protected historical landmark. Because the support beams were located on the outside the interior space had unobstructed floor space (177 x 58 feet).

The building is the first fully air conditioned building and the first to provide indoor underground parking.

Architects: Skidmore, Owings & Merrill
