Facts

  • Built on a parallelogram-shaped site on what was formerly an extension of Kingsbury Street. Before construction the site was crossed by grade-level railroad tracks.
  • The east and west façades are each braced against the wind by nine stacked chevron braces.
  • A rare example of a steel-framed residential tower; the lobby and the second level are built of concrete but the rest of the structure, including the core, is a steel megaframe.
  • Several setbacks at the top provide outdoor terraces for the penthouse apartments.
  • The lobby is an exceptionally high 30 feet, and is connected to a parking garage behind the building.
  • The building is positioned dramatically at a northern terminus of Kingsbury Street, a diagonal thoroughfare that runs parallel to the river.
  • Constructed earlier than its namesake, a square-block park on the Chicago River across Erie Street. During the park's planning stages four skyscrapers were being built around its perimeter, partly in anticipation of the views.
  • This building received a Distinguished Building Award from the Chicago Chapter of the American Institute of Architects in 2005.
