Fisher Building History
- Completed in 1896 The Fisher Building was commissioned by paper industry magnate Lucius Fisher and designed by famed Chicago Architect Daniel Burnham. It was the 2nd tallest building in Chicago at the time and is the oldest remaining 18 story building in Chicago.
- The Fisher Building was considered a standard for luxury with mosaic tile floors throughout, Carrera marble lined hallways and Mahogany finishes. Many of these have been preserved through the years giving the building a sense of history and elegance.
