Uniquely positioned on the prominent southeast corner of Grant Park in downtown Chicago, the building evokes an international style but remains rooted in Chicago’s signature modernist tradition. The sleek façade, comprised of blue-and-gray low-emissivity glass with mica-fleck-infused silver painted metals, echoes the stunning setting of open sky and reflective waters. The graceful, amorphous massing allows every unit to capture primary views of both the Lakefront and Grant Park. A series of stepped, curved terraces rise up the flanks of the structure, slowly receding to reveal the building’s soaring core, which culminates with an illuminated silver elliptical peak that seamlessly conceals mechanical components.
