The Tribune Tower is a 470 feet (140 m) tall, 36 floor neo-Gothic skyscraper located at 435 North Michigan Avenue in Chicago, Illinois, United States. Built between 1923 and 1925, the international design competition for the tower became a historic event in 20th century architecture.Put Tribune Tower and other Chicago attractions into our Chicago online itinerary builder, and watch your holiday take shape.
The tower was the home of the Chicago Tribune, Tribune Media, and Tribune Publishing. WGN Radio (720 kHz) originated broadcasts from the building until moving to 303 Wacker Drive in June 2018. The last WGN Radio broadcast left from the Tribune Tower on June 18, 2018. The ground level formerly housed the large restaurant Howells & Hood (named for the building's architects), now closed, whose patio overlooked nearby Pioneer Court and Michigan Avenue. CNN's Chicago bureau was also located in the building. It is listed as a Chicago Landmark and is a contributing property to the Michigan–Wacker Historic District. The original Tribune Tower was built in 1868, but was destroyed in the Great Chicago Fire in 1871. In early 2018, work began on converting the entire office building into condominiums, expected to be completed by 2020.

The second best meal we ever had. The service was top notch. Worth every penny that you spend. If weather is good grab a table out but the river and enjoy.
Beautiful old tower now being renovated as it no longer belongs to the Tribune. I was really impressed with their collection of rocks when I was in Chicago about 6 years ago. Made a point of visiting with my son on a hot day in July 2019 and they have covered fences up all around the tower. Couldn't tell for sure, but it looked like the rocks were gone.
