Filming


The Tribune Tower, located in the heart of the “Magnificent Mile”, offers prime real estate for those looking to capture the essence of downtown Chicago. Constructed in neo-gothic construction style, the Tower is a Chicago Landmark and has served as an inspiration to building similarly styled such as the NBC Tower and Randolph Tower, formerly known as the Steuben Club Building.

The building façade is dotted with a collection stones and artifacts- a tradition which dates back to the 1920s when Col. McCormick began collecting historical artifacts during his worldwide travels.

Within its 36 floors, the Tower offers available commercial space, built-out and finished spaces, providing stunning views both north and south of Michigan Avenue, ideal for on-location television and film shoots.

  • CSI: NY
  • Dhoom 3
  • Headhunter’s Calling
  • Empire
  • Parks & Recreation
  • “Route 66” Voice at the End of the Line
