Chase Bank Building
Constructed in 1929, the Chase Bank Building is Tucson's oldest skyscraper. The building is the third bank on the site. In 1901, Consolidated National Bank (CNB) bought the property and built the second bank on the site. The first one belonged to another company and it was demolished to make way for the second one which was expanded in 1917. Given its architecture and importance to Tucson's economic development, the building was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 2003. The lobby features murals painted by Anthony B. Heinsbergen, whose work is present on several Los Angeles landmarks.
