That is the Chicago Athletic Club/Association Building from 1893. Shows the influence of John Ruskin's aesthetics...

You're welcome.

Yes, it's in the style of a Venetian palazzo. It was Ruskin who popularized the Venetian style back then. You can see a number of highrises in Chicago that are in this style.

Indeed.

While many cities in the world grow more and more skyscrapers and catch up quantity-wise, Chcago will always be at the top, quality-wise

Just very impressive.

I would have to agree. Every skyscraper that is built in the City gets scrutinized and criticized by the locals more so than in any other place, IMO. It is the religion over there.

Not really. But if it makes you feel good to think so, then by all means!
