Ye Olde Sears Tower

If you're heading over to Garfield Park, as an official neighborhood stop of Open House Chicago, be sure to visit the old Sears Catalogue Plant and the original Sears Tower, a grandiose 14-story testament to the company's glory days. Alan G. Brake of the Tribune also suggests checking out Homan Square, a mixed-use development built on old Sears acreage. And definitely visit Power House High School, a LEED Platinum adaptive reuse of another old Sears building, complete with coal chutes, turbines and other industrial relics. It'll be a busy day! [Trib]
