Huge, enormous, grandiose....are adjectives to describe this edifice.
First we saw it during our 90 min architectural boat tour. The guide stated many hard to believe figures about its construction in terms of miles of wiring, concrete used, window numbers,...etc and that until recently this building only had its own zip number.
Tomorrow we walked the Riverwalk and standing in front of it felt like ants.
It's an enormous shopping and event venue with an odd mixture of Art Deco and massive brutalist Soviet architecture.

My husband and I had the privilege of going to The Mart for the first time Dec. 2021. The vendors display high end merchandise, and the creatives were happy to share information with us lay people. One must experience this massive building, as it was an indescribable, well, experience. We went back the next day even though most places were closed for the holidays. It is a marvelous way to spend some time - a lot of time - when in Chicago. It leaves an impression on visitors, and it is one of the most memorable buildings in Chicago.

If you are a native Chicagoan or have ever visited the city, you probably walked past or drove past the Merchandise Mart. But have you ever spent any time inside the building? Have you ever been inside the world's largest commercial building, a structure so large that it once had its own zip code, a building so massive that it has been known as "a city within a city?" Located at 222 Merchandise Mart Plaza, at Kinzie Street between Orleans and Wells, on the Chicago River just east of Chicago's original trading post at Wolf Point, the junction of the river's North and South Branches, in downtown Chicago, the Merchandise Mart is a leading retailing and wholesale destination that hosts 20,000 visitors and tenants per day. Built by Marshall Field & Company and owned by the Kennedy family for half a century, it centralized Chicago's wholesale goods business by consolidating architectural and interior design vendors and traders under a single roof. Opened in 1930, the 25-story Art Deco style structure is spread across two square city blocks and includes 4.2 million square feet of floor space. Its construction required 29 million bricks, 40 miles of plumbing, 380 miles of wiring, 4 million cubic yards of concrete and 4,000 windows. Visitors also marvel at the 7.5 miles of corridors and 30 elevators. In 1977, the Chicago Apparel Center was opened on the west side of Orleans Street, increasing the Merchandise Mart's total floor space to 6.2 million square feet. Since 2010, the design center showroom has been open to the public. The retail shopping area, named The Shops at the Mart, opened in 1991 and includes apparel shops, beauty services, news stands and bookstores, financial services, travel services, telecommunications services, specialty food and wine stores, photo services, a dry cleaner, shoe shine stand and food court. In addition, a 521-room Holiday Inn is housed in the Apparel Center. Since 1969, the Merchandise Mart has hosted the annual National Exposition of Contract Furnishings with over 1,000 exhibitors and 50,000 attendees, the largest trade show of his kind in North America. Oh, the building isn't just big. The first floor is beautiful, too. An architectural masterpiece. The lobby features artist Jules Guerin's frieze of 17 murals which graphically illustrate commerce throughout the world. Is a visit to the Merchandise Mart a once-in-a-lifetime experience? My wife and I vividly recall going on a day-long shopping trip with a home designer to buy new furniture for our apartment. One glitzy showroom after another. One purchase, a grand mirror for our entryway, took two weeks to be shipped from England. At the Merchandise Mart, everything is first-rate.

This beautiful Art Deco building is not worth a visit unless you have interpreters that can tell you what you're looking at. Building personnel do run tours. Every couple of weeks in the winter Chicago Architecture Center offers 45" tours, but our guide merely did a lot of historical name-dropping and couldn't answer questions about how the art deco elements were incorporated into the structure. While it's nice current owners have been restored the gorgeous lobby and made the building economically viable with corporate offices, its working environment offers little for visitors with few shops. Eating choices reduced to a fast food court. It didn't help that not all the information screens that were supposed to guide you around were not functioning properly.

Decent food court options with a Potbelly and Starbucks below the food court. Not a lot of shopping options. Clean.

The huge building is impressive and a sight to see. In its heyday it must have dominated the shoreline. On an evening it becomes the focal attraction on the ‘Riverside Walk’ and is illuminated as ‘Art on the Mart’ - gran a drip/ bite to eat (there’s lots of local vendors) and soak up the visuals ( it’s a free treat!)

シカゴ川沿いにあるとても大きくて立派な建物です。ループからのアクセスも良いし、ダウンタウンの中心からも遠くないです。おすすめです。
