This glass tower designed by bKL in the tradition of Chicago modernism rises 47 stories above grade to overlook Lakeshore East Park, the Chicago River and Lake Michigan. In addition to 515 residential units, the mixed-use tower designed for Magellan Development Group LLC contains 18,000 square feet of retail space and 18,000 square feet of amenities. With all parking located below Wacker Drive, the tower meets the street gracefully, enhancing the pedestrian experience at street level.
The façade is a composition of light and translucency. On the east and west façades, clear, translucent and fritted glass combine with aluminum to form a curtain wall. Continuous, inset balconies on the north and south elevations provide views of the city skyline and Millennium Park.
The amenity floor and the amenity deck enhance the experience of interior and exterior living throughout the seasons. An exterior lap pool and landscaped terrace are complemented by a fitness center, saunas, whirlpools, and game and media rooms.
