Statement of Significance (as of designation - May 15, 1975):
Constructed in three stages--1899, 1904, and 1906--the Carson Pirie, Scott Department Store is an original and practical design for a dry goods palace. Louis Sullivan's style of organic ornament is fully developed in this building, which is remarkable for the integration of its horizontal composition and its detail; the 12 story addition (1906) by D.H. Burnham and Company is in keeping with his original plans.

There is no threat to the landmark at this time.

No change, the landmark is in good condition.
