Viewed from the intersection of New Montgomery and Jessie Streets, the Sharon Building appears to have a rectangular footprint...
...but the view from New Montgomery and Stevenson Streets reveals that the building is L-shaped and the frontage on New Montgomery Street is only twenty feet deep.

The Sharon Building, designed by George Kelham, stands on New Montgomery Street facing the Palace Hotel.
The Sharon Building is a Chicago School commercial building that was once filled with the offices of architects. Part of the frontage on New Montgomery serves a facade for a parking garage and is only twenty feet deep. The ground floor is occupied by the House of Shields, a venerable bar and restaurant which contains an ornate bar built for the Palace Hotel but later moved across the street.
