Have you noticed the Plymouth Building?
The sliver of a skyscraper, 417 S. Dearborn, hides out between Holabird & Root's‚ historic Old Colony Building to the north and William LeBaron Jenney's Manhattan Building to the south; a waterboy caught between a pair of linebackers.
But the 11-story Plymouth Building holds it own between the two architectural giants. So much so, the city's Commission on Chicago Landmarks was set to consider preliminary landmark status for 110-year-old building today as part of a redevelopment project to convert the vacant structure into a student housing.
