Following the Great Fire of 1871 was a massive rebuilding of Chicago that included The Bryant Block. This Italianate building was an early example of the use of pre-cast concrete facades in Chicago. An 1889 remodeling by architect Julius Huber made the Bryant Block competitive with newer and larger commercial buildings. This was accomplished by adding two floors, an atrium, and redesigning the first two floors. Also at this time the building became known as The Real Estate Board Building. On November 1983, the now called Delaware Building was designated a Chicago Landmark by the City Council of Chicago under Mayor Harold Washington.
