On my way to work I stopped by to see the Reebie Storage Warehouse in Lincoln Park. It's a storage warehouse with a facade decorated in an Egyptian motif. The amount of decoration on the building is surprising given its utilitarian function. And it's the only Egyptian-themed building that I've seen in Chicago. It's also interesting to me that it's still appears to be used for its original purpose as a storage facility.
The last photo is of the building next door that is currently a bank. I just think it's interesting that the building next door continues the Egyptian motif.
