The Tribune Tower, headquarters for the Tribune Company, was finished in 1925. It is modeled after the Cathedral of Rouen, France. The design was actually part of a worldwide competition for the most beautiful office building in the world.
The building stands 463 feet, and includes flying buttresses and spires. The entrance is of Gothic style and is very elaborate. The base of the building contains fragments of important buildings and sites from all over the world. WGN Radio also has a studio here on the 1st floor, with a window to watch live broadcasts.

The Tribune Tower
Across Michigan Ave from the equally renowned Wrigley Building. The "gothic design" building was completed in 1925. We are hoping that the planned "Trump Tower" to replace the Sun-Times building will not destroy this part of our skyline.
