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.

Condition:
There is no threat to the landmark at this time.

No change, the landmark is in good condition.
