The Palmolive Building, formerly the Playboy Building, is a 37 story Art Deco building at 919 N. Michigan Avenuemarker in Chicagomarker. Built by Holabird & Root, it was completed in 1929 and was home to Colgate-Palmolive-Peet. A beacon was added in 1930 and operated until 1981. Previously called the Palmolive Building, it came to be known as the Playboy Building when it was home to Playboy magazine from 1965 to 1989. During this time the word P-L-A-Y-B-O-Y was spelled out in letters. It was designated a Chicago Landmark in 2000, as was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 2003.

Today, the building is being converted for residential use by developer Draper and Kramer. The first two floors house upscale office and retail space. High-end condos make up the rest of the building. Perhaps its most famous residents are Vince Vaughn and Lou Piniella.


Residents are zoned to schools in the Chicago Public Schools.
