Six North Michigan

Chicago, Illinois 

Built in 1898, 27 years after the Chicago Fire, Six North Michigan was the original Montgomery Ward headquarters and remains a historical icon of Chicago’s early “skyscraper age” as it was Chicago’s tallest building for 20 years. Serving as general contractor, Leopardo helped reposition the building into private residences that now sit in the historical Michigan Avenue district, which is considered the only landmark residential development of its kind on Michigan Avenue.
