Christine Till
Wrapped in a history involving gold, diamonds and gangsters, 35 E. Wacker - known as the Jewelers Building - is a Chicago skyscraper with a rich past. It once was the tallest building outside New York City.
Jewelers' Building was constructed from 1924-1926. It's 40 stories rise 523 feet above the ground, crowned with a gorgeous dome. Although it was built during a time when Art Deco reigned, it is a very classically influenced building. A well known design feature was the 22 floor car lift that allowed jewelers to enter the building and ride up to their office without exiting the car.
Today the Jewelers Building is also known as the Pure Oil Building, the North American Life Building, or as 35 East Wacker, and is headquarters of the famous firm Murphy/Jahn Architects. Helmut Jahn's showroom occupies the dome at the building's summit. It is listed on the National Register of Historic Places (as part of the Michigan-Wacker Historic District) and is a Chicago Landmark.
The structure is featured in scenes from 2005's "Batman Begins", with Batman perched on one of the turrets rising at the corner of the dome's base, and in scenes from "Terminators: Dark of the Moon," this is where the bad robots lived.
