it’s in the details

The Statler Hotel was built in 1956, for the unbelievable cost of $16 million. It was a showplace of mid-century architecture, with long lines, geometric details, a teal-colored exterior curtainwall system, and (naturally) a heliport. It was the first building to feature piped-in elevator music.

It closed in 2001 and was nearly demolished in 2003, but fortunately that was avoided and a $175 million renovation restored the place to its previous glory.
