American Osteopathic Association Building rising behind the under construction Burberry flagship store

With the demolition of the Magnificent Mile’s Burberry Flagship Store (633 North Michigan Avenue), it’s now possible to see just how big the replacement store will be.

The windows on the lower floors of the American Osteopathic Association building (142 East Ontario Street), behind the Burberry plot, have been sealed up in anticipation of the rise of the retail monolith next door.

While the replacement Burberry store is going to be five stories, plus one basement level, seeing how high the blanked out AOA windows go gives us a good idea of the scale of the new Burb’ shop.
