The neo-gothic tower's signature is the exterior collection of stones from other famous edifices, like the Parthenon, St. Peter's Basilica, Notre Dame, the White House and most recently, the Berlin Wall.

Over 400 stores pack the concrete along Michigan Avenue, the eight-block stretch known as Magnificent Mile.
