Time Out says

Designed by architects Daniel Burnham and John Root in 1888, the Rookery is one of the oldest high-rises in the Loop, providing a peek back into Chicago's storied architectural past. The building gained its name for the flocks of pigeons that were attracted to its roof and ledges and was built on the same plot of land that once housed Chicago's City Hall. Today, the building houses offices and a glass-covered light court lobby that was redesigned by noted architect Frank Lloyd Wright.
