Facts

  • The building shelters a private boat dock on the Chicago River, under its west side.
  • Only the first phase of this complex was built. The S-shaped structure was supposed to continue another 400 meters south to Roosevelt Road. A much earlier proposal by the same architect called for a cluster of very tall cylindrical towers connected by skybridges, on the site just north of Polk Street.
  • A 10-story S-shaped atrium runs the length of the building.
  • Each apartment is wedge-shaped, fanning out either towards the windows or inward to the atrium.
