Cities Skylines – The Montgomery
This is based on a 28-story building in Chicago’s Near North Side neighborhood (just northwest of the Loop, a mile west of the Hancock Center). This international style condo building, which started life in the 1970s as the headquarters of the Montgomery Ward retail company, features a massive grid of curtain wall windows beset by slabs of taverite and boasts symmetry on nearly every axis in the knowable world.
It was designed by Minoru Yamasaki, who designed the World Trade Center, and it’s rumored that Mayor Richard J Daley had a clandestine meeting in one of this building’s offices with then-governor of California Ronald Reagan on the subject of routing Chicago’s transit revenue toward arming and training a certain would-be band of insurgents in Afghanistan. But you didn’t hear that from me.
