Facts

  • The 9-story atrium lobby contains a sculpture "Large Internal-External Upright Form" by Henry Moore.
  • The tower has 9 corner offices per floor.
  • The tower is located between the Loop's financial center and the State Street shopping district.
  • Rising above the atrium, the tower's sawtoothed setback design minimizes the disruption of views from nearby buildings.
  • The tower's tubular structural system provides strong wind resistance and allows column-free interior spaces.
  • Office areas and mezzanine balconies look onto the central atrium.
  • A stepped steel truss structure repeats the sawtooth geometry on an inclined plane and supports the clear glass enclosure.
  • This used to be connected by a 2nd-floor skywalk to Chase Tower across Madison Street. The lobby also feeds into the underground pedway system, through its northeast corner.
