Carbide and Carbon Building by Benjamin Rascoe

Carbide and Carbon Building is a 37-story, 503 feet (153 m) landmark Art Deco high rise built in 1929. The exterior of the building is covered in polished black granite, and the tower is dark green terra cotta with gold leaf accents. The ground floor was specifically designed to display the products of Union Carbide and Carbon’s subsidiaries. The lobby features black Belgian Marble and Art Deco bronzework trim. The building is now home to the St Jane Hotel. (Chicago, Illinois, USA)
