  1. Prior to this building being erected this was the only city block in the Loop in which all the the buildings had load bearing walls.Now Chicago can no longer make that claim. In addition, the Auditorium Building is reputed to have settled three feet. It was built on landfill from the great fire that was dumped into a former marsh.Was this taken into account with the new building?
