The Corinthian

The Corinthian apartment building on 1st Ave and 38th St is not really mid-century; it was completed in 1987. But it certainly has that brutalistic look of the era. It is often compared to two mid-century classics in Chicago — the “corn cob” twin towers and Lake Point Tower. Regardless of when it was built, it is just a really cool building that looks like it could have been built two decades earlier.
