Exterior of Carbide & Carbon Building


Honoring an Icon

The 1929 Carbide & Carbon building is a 37-story landmark structure located on Chicago’s famed Michigan Avenue. Designed by the Burnham Brothers (sons of renowned American architect Daniel Burnham) as the regional office of Union Carbide and Carbon Co., the Art Deco style building was designated a Chicago Landmark in 1996. Revered for its unique shape, reminiscent of a vintage green champagne bottle reportedly symbolizing a response to the Prohibition era, the structure’s tower façade, made of dark green terracotta with gold leaf accents, sits atop a street facing base of polished black granite, black marble and bronze trim. Pendry Chicago brings a modern allure to the building’s storied history with all-new interiors and luxury amenities that commingle carefully with an appreciation for its Art Deco style and heritage.
