Located between Navy Pier and the iconic Tribune Tower, the development centers upon a 48-story residential tower set atop a four story podium. The base includes parking, a dramatic residential lobby, leasing offices, and commercial lease space. Distinguishing itself from its context, the floor plan is derived from two angled ellipses that slide apart, permitting a conventional floor plan that beguiles the organic shape, orients windows towards select view corridors, and creates a striking presence. One edge of the tower grounds the southwest corner of the site highlighting the residential lobby and primary retail space. The tower’s glazing flows to the base in a distinctive form, further enlivening the active Illinois Avenue entertainment and retail corridor.
