Faits

  • The building displays several of architect Helmut Jahn's tradmarks including horizontal stripes, and a blue glass façade like some of his east coast skyscrapers.
  • Like several other Jahn buildings, even the sidewalks were designed by him.
  • The tower is octagonal with four chevron gables at the top and chevron arches over the 2 main entrances.
  • Each of the top 4 floors has 16 corner offices.
  • Tallest building in Illinois outside Chicago.
  • The five-story lobby is clad in white Statuario Venato and gray Moncervetto marbles. It features a stainless steel sculpture by Nancy Graves titled Peripeteia '88.
  • After its completion, opponents of the tower spread a false rumor that it was leaning. The rumor made it into the Chicago Tribune before it was discredited.
  • The glass spandrels are patterned with a silvery sheen which gives them the appearance of aluminum.
  • The design features chevrons not only in the gables and entrances, but in the lobby walls, elevator doors, and the tiles of the health club's swimming pool.
  • The main entrance is aligned with a long tree-lined driveway coming off of Spring Road from the east.
