Aon Center, Chicago

Originally known as the Standard Oil Building, the 1136 foot tall Aon Center is Chicago's 3rd tallest building, after the Willis Tower and Trump International Tower.

Originally known as the Standard Oil Building, the 1136 foot tall Aon Center is Chicago's 3rd tallest building, after the Willis Tower and Trump International Tower. It was built in 1972 by architect Edward Durell Stone and initially was faced with marble, but the windy city began to blow the marble off the sides of the building. The entire building had to be refaced with granite - a costly job at one-half of the entire building's costs! A walk around the base can be particularly gratifying to admire the uninterrupted views straight up the shear walls and the 'musical sculptures.'
