The former Chicago, Aurora, and Elgin Railway terminal in Aurora, Illinois, also known as the Hotel Arthur. Completed in 1905, it was the tallest building in Aurora at the time, as well as being the only hotel on the east side of the Fox River. In 1915, the CA&E leased space in the ground floor, and the building was renamed the Traction Terminal Building, a name it carries to this day. Now on the National Register of Historic Places, it's being restored and converted to downtown condos.
