Your OHC Photos: MDA City Apartments

With the construction of 73 East Lake Street, the most captivating part of the MDA City Apartments has been obscured — The mural on its east side.  Even though MDA’s glassy new neighbor has entombed the mural, MDA still has its charms, including the views from its roof deck.

Man_ofSteel sent us two photos he took from the roof during Open House Chicago.

The first is a black-and-white pic looking down Wabash Avenue, with a peek at the common area on the top of the parking podium at The Heritage at Millennium Park (130 North Garland Court), as well as Macy’s Fields and a number of office buildings of a similar age.

The second photograph is towards Wacker Drive, and gives us a view of Virgin Hotel’s red shroud, as well as 35 East Wacker Drive, the Kemper Building (1 East Wacker Drive), and the Leo Burnett Building (35 West Wacker Drive).
