Chicago's famed Merchandise Mart is the world’s largest commercial building, spanning two city blocks and rising 25 stories. Built in 1930 by Marshall Field & Co. and later owned for over half a century by the Kennedy family, the art deco landmark is located at the junction of the Chicago River's branches. The Mart centralized Chicago's wholesale goods business by consolidating architectural and interior design vendors and trades under a single roof.
