Facts

  • The architects described this as a masculine counterpart to the curvaceous Lake Point Tower nearby.
  • The façade combines dark gray, maroon, and pink panels in an abstract pattern suggesting a human figure, with a head, shoulders, ribs, and legs.
  • When built, this was the tallest precast concrete panel clad building in Chicago.
  • Before its condominium conversion the building took its name from North Pier, a long building to the west along Ogden Slip.
