330 North Wabash and Marina City are stark contrasts in design styles. Marina City is famous for its ‘corn cob’ style tubular towers and 330 North Wabash is a great example of Minimalist and Modernist architecture.
330 North Wabash stands 695 feet high and features 52 storeys. It was designed by architect Ludwig Mies van der Rohe who unfortunately died before construction began in 1969. It was previously known as the IBM Building as it was commissioned by IBM. However, they vacated the building in 2005 and the lower 13 stories were redeveloped into a luxury award-winning hotel.
The building featured heavily in 2008’s The Dark Knight as Harvey Dent’s office, Commissioner Loeb / Mayor Garcia’s office, Wayne Enterprises’ board room and the final resting place of Brian, the Batman wannabe vigilante.
