The Montgomery Ward Catalog and Retail Sales building (Mail Order House) and the Montgomery Ward Administration building stand along the east bank of the river. Both of these buildings are now converted to condominiums, office space, and restaurant space. The John Hancock Center is visible under construction in the distance.
