Facts

  • The architects described this as a masculine counterpart to the curvaceous Lake Point Tower nearby.
  • The facade combines different shades of gray, red, and pink panels in an abstract pattern to define the base, middle, and top. The colors were chosen to complement the brick of the adjacent North Pier Terminal.
  • The tower was originally named North Pier Apartments, after the North Pier Terminal, which is now known as The Lofts At River East.
  • When built, this was the tallest precast concrete panel clad building in Chicago.
