I had read about Wright’s involvement with A&S’s Loeb Apartments via an account by George Elmslie, but I was not aware any of it had remained to this day. Apparently, a stairway and its sidewalk portal have survived as a secondary stair serving an adjacent building constructed in the 1920’s when Randolph Street was widened and half of the Loeb Apartment building was lopped off.
According to Elmslie, Wright and others had a lot of involvement with some smaller projects in the office, but Sullivan still kept close tabs on work assigned to draftsmen.
