It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas (2011 edition, part 12)

Wrigley Building

The top of the Wrigley Building (400 North Michigan Avenue) is all lit up in red and green an anticipation of Christmas.  But notice how the windows just below, and the clock face, aren’t illuminated.  At one time I read a magazine article showing it as one of Chicago’s great secret residences.  However, there was a Chicago Tribune article a few years ago that indicated that a law firm occupies those levels.  Unfortunately, I can’t remember which one was more recent, and presumably more up to date.
