Burnham Library


On-site Retail

Located in the heart of downtown Chicago’s financial district, The Rookery was built to be a prestigious business environment. The building enjoys an unrivaled history in Chicago and has proven, throughout generations, to be a place of bold progress and great success.

With The Rookery, architects Daniel Burnham and John Root created an architectural masterpiece that is one of the greatest surviving examples of the early commercial skyscrapers. Its stately façade is unmatched in architectural detailing and is complemented by a rich and inviting environment within the building, highlighted by incredible architectural features including the mesmerizing Oriel staircase and stunning light court.
