Thickness of walls at the base of the Monadnock Building, a landmarked 1891 building in Chicago's Loop, located two blocks away from the Consumers Building (1913) and Century Building (1915), both of which face a date with the wrecking ball: 6 feet (1.83m)

The Century Building (right) and Consumers Building (left) are located at 202 South State and 220 South State, respectively. (Photo: Google Maps)
