Wrigley Building Tours

The 1920s were a time of architectural significance in Chicago. The Wrigley Building, opened in 1925, set the pace for Chicago’s development and ushered the city into the modern age. When owner William Wrigley Jr., of the gum company of the same name, scouted locations for his company headquarters, he chose an unsightly piece of land – a uniquely shaped triangle – in an area known for warehouses, rail yards, and factories. His intuition played off, though, as this stretch of land eventually became known as Chicago’s Magnificent Mile. 

The Wrigley Building’s clock tower is perhaps its most iconic image. The building’s design was inspired by the Seville Cathedral’s Giralda Tower in Spain and shows architectural influences from the French Renaissance and the Spanish Revival styles. The building is unmistakable, situated in such a way that pedestrians, cars, and even boats can see it. In 2011, the Wrigley Building was sold to a group of investors who plan to add a Walgreens, a coffee shop, and a fitness center. 

Practical Info

The City of Chicago named the Wrigley Building a landmark. It has been accredited with spurring development around the city, particularly along the Magnificent Mile. It is the crowning jewel of Chicago architecture and a must-see attraction. The building is located at 400 North Michigan Avenue.
