Summary

Significance: The Marshall Field River Warehouse is a unique industrial structure that was designed by an important national architect for a prominent Chicago business. Its significance is derived from its design, setting on the Chicago River, and details and craftsmanship of its exterior...The placement of the River Warehouse is unique. It was designed to permit access by river barges on the east, and railroad cars on the west. It is the only remaining warehouse on that part of the river that retains this unique ability to facilitate the two transportation forms. It is also important because it is the only remaining Marshall Field and Company downtown warehouse.
