I like the UNITRIN building - I had offices there back in the dot-com boom. The lobby is gorgeous marble and connects(ed) through to the Jewelers building ( a real gem ). It also has a usable ( as in sitting ) facade on the front. We had 3/4 of a floor, with it mostly open ( no cubes !) and the views were spectacular. The penthouse floor ( with it's own elevator for the last floor up ) is laid out with a hallway around the outside, and glass walled office or conference rooms which have a view out, without blocking it from everyone else. Sadly this was storage space in the 80's.

The Jewelers building does not allow photography in the lobby, so shoot quick.
