The 618 S. Michigan Ave. building was designed by architect William Carbys Zimmerman in 1913. Known as the Arcade Building, the 10-story building sported a grid-like façade with large windows and minimal masonry and housed specialty shops, photographers, publishers and the American Red Cross. The seventh floor of this building was also home to Columbia from 1927 until 1936 when it was associated with the Pestalozzi Froebel Teachers’ College.

The outlet was shot so they couldn't use the waffle maker. Wish they would've sent out an email or some form of contact before I went over.

This was a perfect evening. You get to see all kinds of beautiful views of the the city, and you get taken out on the lake to see the city from the water. I took a few hundred pictures and videos.
