Does anyone know why this is called the columbian?

The red brick bulding reminds me of the condo buildings they build in colombia, except they don't make anything anywhere near as tall in colombia as this building.

The World's Columbian Exposition, held in Chicago in 1893, was the last and the greatest of the nineteenth century's World's Fairs. Nominally a celebration of Columbus' voyages 400 years prior, the Exposition was in actuality a reflection and celebration of American culture and society--for fun, edification, and profit--and a blueprint for life in modern and postmodern America.

The building at 547 S. Clark, now Harrison Street Lofts, was known as the Columbian Building until the conversion in the mid-90s.
