Facts

  • Located kitty-corner from Goudy Square Park in the heart of the Gold Coast. The building is flanked at the other 2 corners by elegant art deco highrises, both designed by Philip Maher.
  • This unusual skyscraper by the architect of Marina City is a slender tower perched on stilts, with a very narrow 4-story podium at the bottom.
  • An exceptionally tall mechanical room on the roof matches the podium at the base.
  • The construction process was similar to Marina City, with a climbing crane completing the thin concrete core in advance of the occupiable building space around it.
