Bankers Building

I have to admit, as striking as it is, there's not much I know about the Bankers Building in downtown Chicago. Just around the corner from the Bank of America Building and a couple blocks from the Chicago Board of Trade Building, it stands at a height of 476 feet (145 m) with 41 floors and was completed in 1927. This high-rise's claim to fame though is the FBI office it once housed on the 19th floor, which was heavily involved in the investigations of John Dillinger and other high-profile criminals of the time. I don't know if those offices are still there.
