• The top of the building features a four story "lantern" that is lit up by sunlight in the day and also lit up at night. The "lantern" helps cover mechanical equipment at the roof of the building.

• On November 17, 2004 a crane swung over and punctured the Chase Tower across the street breaking a window and dropping debris on a car below, nobody was hurt.

• One South Dearborn has three private balconies, two on the 37th floor and one under the lantern on the 40th floor.

• Parking is provided in floors 1 - 8.

• 7 South Dearborn was originally planned on this site, it would have had 112 floors and would have been the tallest building in the world. The project was eventually cancelled in 1999.
