The purpose of the Real Estate and Building Industries Council (RBIC),
which was established in 1993, is to involve the leaders of the
construction, development, and real estate industries in the activities
of Landmarks Illinois, in order to help better promote the reuse and
rehabilitation of historic structures.
Built as the Steuben Club in 1929 by noted Chicago architect K.M.
Vitzthum, the 45-story Gothic Revival Randolph Tower is a confection of
fine terra cotta details. Pointed arches, finials, flying buttresses,
