Facts

  • When completed, the Riverplace Tower was the world's tallest pre-cast, post-tension concrete structure. The outwardly visible concrete grid is the only support needed to hold up the building, freeing up the interior to be filled as desired.
  • The eight exposed columns taper as they rise.
  • Each of the exposed beams is composed of fourteen precast units bound together with high strength post-tensioned steel cables.
  • The structural system consists of a poured concrete core and precast concrete floorplates.
  • The beams taper upward and inward as they cantilever 42 feet from the columns.
  • White quartz sand and white cement give the concrete facade its color.
