a. The Marina City Towers were built in the 1960s with initial funding from the pension fund of the Building Service Employees Union. Originally intended to provide low cost housing for union members, the building ultimately was converted into expensive condominiums. The accompanying photograph shows the Towers under construction in 1961. Note the WCFL banner; the Towers housed the radio voice of the Chicago Federation of Labor.
