George H Wyman
John Zeller, Contractor

Here is yet more proof that George Wyman was a prolific and popular architect in Los Angeles, after designing the well-known Bradbury building. Here in St James Park he created three handsome brick apartment houses for John R Powers. Although all three are Prairie Style in form, they employ different design elemnts -- #1 has is faced with a Wright-like arched entrance; #2 has the appearance of an Italian Villa; and #3 (the latest built) has a Colonial theme.

In such a tony neighborhood, the buildings were made to look from the front like large single-family homes. They included the same amenities which could be found in any high-class home, such as: quarter-sawn oak floors, telephone hook-ups, and live-in domestic quarters. In fact, the Powers family actually lived at 2327 Scarff (#1), and often entertained the more notable (and wealthy) figures from St James Park (proper) and Chester Place. Mr. Powers was a wealthy businessman involved in the Inglewood Cemetary project and the Arizona-Utah Oil Company.

Chicago - Streeterville: John Hancock Center and Drake Hotel from Oak Street Beach

Chicago - Streeterville: John Hancock Center and Drake Hotel from Oak Street Beach

View from Oak Street Beach.

Affectionately called “Big John” by Chicagoans, John Hancock Center stands out as a bold feature of the Chicago skyline. When completed in 1969, it was just the third building in the world to be taller than 1000 feet tall (and the first outside of New York) and the first trussed-tube skyscraper ever built. The 100-story, 1,127 foot tall skyscraper has 18-story-long steel braces criss-crossing the tapering obelisk tower like stacked Xs. These braces eliminate the need for inner support beams by and allowing the skin to function as part of the tubular system, granting additional floor space for use. The building tapers on all four sides, narrowing by a total of 105 feet on the east & west sides and 65 feet on the north & south. The slope of the windows helps to reduce the feeling of vertigo for people looking out of high floors.

The Drake is one of just two United States hotels owned by Hilton International (which owns the Hilton brand outside the United States). Overlooking Lake Michigan, it was founded in 1920 in the Italian Renaissance style and soon became one of Chicago's landmark hotels, a longtime rival of the Palmer House. It has 537 bedrooms and 74 suites, a six-room Presidential Suite, several restaurants, two large ballrooms and the "Palm Court", a club-like secluded lobby.

The East Lake Shore Drive District was designed a landmark by the Chicago Department of Planning and Development on April 18, 1985.
