Slice of Life: Sexy Skyscraper Couples

Roosevelt University building at 425 South Wabash

The young, curvy, sexy blue building that Roosevelt University brought to 425 South Wabash Avenue snuggles up against the older, ginger, yet more masculine, CNA Center (333 South Wabash Avenue).  Both were visually daring in their time, but work together to lighten up a formerly dark and dingy corner of The Loop.

Officially, the new academic building at Roosevelt has no name yet.  If you’ve got a metric assload of money burning a hole in your pocket, and want to splash your name across the top talk to Patrick Woods at to make it happen.
