R. Donnelley Building (now United Airlines Building) located at 77 West Wacker Drive. The much smaller 55 West Wacker (originally Blue Cross-Blue Shield Building) stands between the Leo Burnett Building and the R. R. Donnelley Building. The former Sun-Times building is on the right of the image, and a corner of the Wrigley Building is in the foreground at the extreme right of the image.
