The LaSalle Building
Broadway and Locust
Architect: Isaac Taylor
Status: Still in use.
The LaSalle is one of the simplest old buildings downtown -- and one of the most handsome. With its thin profile, unadorned bay windows and simply decorated base, it seems a distant cousin of Chicago's landmark Monadonok Building -- though this appearance is a result of a 1939 stripping of much of the building's original decorative terra cotta.
