Building Name:Paper Place

Address:801 S Wells
Chicago, IL 60607

Loftiness Factor:9

Commentary:The Paper Place Lofts, built in 1915. Designed by preeminent Chicago architect Daniel Burnham, and built during the last great period of development of the South Loop printing house district from 1900 – 1914. The Paper Place Loft building was designed to provide general office and warehouse facilities for businesses needing space near Grand Central Station, which once stood across Wells St., to the west. The simplicity and elegance of Daniel Burnham’s design made it an obvious pick for residential conversion in the mid-1990s. Ten stories of red brick with limestone trim are devoid of the heavy ornament found in earlier Romanesque revival buildings such as the original Lakeside Press building and the Donahue building. The building is also known as the Polk-Wells Building.
