Restoring the Roanoke

It is no secret that I love seeing old buildings restored. You just have to look at the picture of my office on the left to confirm it. So I was happy to hear that Prime Group has not only refinanced the Roanoke Building at 11 S. LaSalle Street, a building that I've visited more than once in my day, but also that they are planning to restore the building, apply for landmark status (and the tax breaks that go with it) and even make operational a bell tower that I honestly did not know about.
