Facts

  • Originally designed with a twin tower at 181 North Clark. The proposal was revived in early 2001.
  • Built on the former site of Chicago's Greyhound Bus Station.
  • The unusual top has a steep slope on the east, and is screened on the west by a large decorative construction that is often likened to the roof comb of a Mayan temple.
  • The basement is connected by a pedway with the Thompson Center to the west.
  • The northern wing was intended as a central entrance for both the existing tower and the unbuilt north tower.
  • The building's base was designed to give symmetry to Thompson Center Plaza by matching the height of Chicago City Hall.
