The Illinois, also known as the Mile-High Illinois, is a hypertall skyscraper, located in Chicago, Illinois at 1200 W. Madison Street. Though there were originally a large grouping of apartments and homes in the area, they were deemed too heavily damaged by the 2012 Chicago 'quake and were demolished, making way for the construction of The Illinois. Originally designed by Frank Lloyd Wright in 1956, The Illinois was more of a whimsical idea than a serious one, until after 2012 that is.
