190 South LaSalle is another very-1980's skyscraper, with its beige exterior and faux gabled roof. But what it lacks in originality, it more than makes up for in height. It appears to be a very tall château complete with small rose windows in the gables and arched one-story windows capping the vertical window elements, unifying them into a single form. Perhaps too much effort was spent emphasizing the verticality of these windows, as their proportions make it look like some kind of ritzy high-rise jail. It is most notable, however for the fact that this was John Burgee's first skyscraper in his native Chicago.
