What kind of architecture are these types of buildings considered?

I really love these types of 19/20th century buildings but have no idea what the style is called.

That's just one example but you find them all over US cities.

Looks a bit like Italianate/neoRomanesque. Maybe a bit eclectic...

It looks more like the decorating elements are renaissance style combined with the typical chicago school facade.
As you already said, it was very common to do this. Often with variing elements and styles for decoration.
