DescriptionView to the west from the Chicago River, towards three Mies van der Rohe office buildings. Two Illinois Center (233 North Michigan Avenue) is on the left. One Illinois Center (111 East Wacker Drive) stands next to it on the right, with the Hyatt Regency Chicago I under construction in front of it. All three of these buildings are part of the Illinois Center complex, a development built on land formerly owned by the Illinois Central Railroad. The third Mies building, the IBM building (330 North Wabash) is next to the right, and the former Sun-Times building (demolished) is visible in front of its base. The Equitable Building (401 North Michigan Avenue) is the next high-rise to the right. The Mandel Building (Mandel-Lear Building) formerly at 211 East North Water Street (demolished) is in front of the Equitable Building, and other storage and warehouse facilities are in the right foreground of the image.
