Facts

  • The northwest corner of the building is an acute angle with a four-story rectangular opening near the top.
  • A 20-story companion tower of similar design, but pointing the opposite way, was originally proposed on the adjacent lot.
  • The lobby's wall extends beyond the building to frame a small plaza by the building's pointed corner.
  • Before Kenzo Tange was hired to design the building, Johnson/Burgee Associates were slated as the architects.
  • The land to the south is a landscaped park with fountains and terraces leading up to Wabash Avenue.
