As two iconic early skyscrapers along Chicago’s historic State Street, the Century and Consumers Buildings contribute to the architectural significance of the area known as “the Loop.” Yet they have sat vacant since the General Services Administration (GSA) bought them in 2005, and both are now severely deteriorated. GSA is considering demolishing both historic buildings to address security concerns with the adjacent Dirksen Federal Courthouse.
Contact the GSA to ask them not to demolish these significant buildings.
