Slice of Life: Olympia’s Show

The Olympia Centre (737 North Michigan Avenue) towers over its immediate neighbors.  From most angles it is up to its bellybutton in last-generation architecture, which prevents people from appreciating its slightly sloping Fuji form.  From this vantage point, it’s possible to see just how tall this place is.

It gets to claim a Michigan Avenue address because its podium is the Michigan Avenue Neiman Marcus store.

And for what it’s worth, according to the Tribune, this is where Mike Ditka lives.
