Wrigley Building, Chicago

The Wrigley Building is a Spanish Revival style building completed in 1922 by the architects Graham, Anderson, Probst & White. At night, the front is illuminated by 1,000 watt floodlights placed across the river.

It's old and decorated very nice.

For the time era, and how it makes such a beautiful landmark:
