Descripción:More than a tower, Water Tower Place is a shopping mecca for millions of tourists in middle America. While its stately white form is often overlooked in Chicago's skyline, there's no question of its impact on the city and its tourist trade.
The building that we see today is the result of the Marshall Field department store chain's desire to open a new store north of its flagship entity on State Street. The company approached a real estate developer about the project and it was decided to put the new store on Michigan Avenue.
Michigan Avenue, at the time, was a boulevard of high class apartment buildings and even higher class boutiques. While State Street was the market for the masses, Michigan Avenue was the quieter, classier, shopping district. Or at least it was until 1969. That was the year the John Hancock Center opened, driving a massive office and residential complex into the heart of the area. If the Hancock Center was the crack in the dike, Water Tower Place was the flood that followed.
