Chicago Innovation Award Winner

Riverside Investment & Development

Winner in: 2017
Winning Product: 150 N. Riverside
Winner Category: Chicago Innovation Award
Industry: Industrial and Energy

150 North Riverside is a 54-story, Class A+ office tower with approximately 1.23 million square feet of rentable space. The building, designed by architect Goettsch Partners, occupies less than 25 percent of its two-acre site and utilizes a combination of unique design methodologies, material selections and technology infrastructure which, in combination, were able to overcome the physical limitations of one of Chicago’s most technically challenging sites.  

 

The building structure’s core-supported design results in the 750-foot tower resting atop a base that is merely 38 feet wide. This narrow building footprint allows for more than 75 percent of the property to be unenclosed outdoor space, vastly improving the pedestrian experience on and surrounding the site. The park and plaza have provided over 1,000 lineal feet of seating, multiple assembly/event spaces, and 360 feet of riverwalk frontage, which has already become one of the most populated circulation paths for downtown commuters. 

In addition, the building’s lobby features 150 Media Stream, a one-of-a-kind cultural landmark in the form of a 3,000-square-foot digital art installation. With content sourced and directed by Riverside Investment & Development’s on-staff curator, the installation displays visual arts content in collaboration with local and nationally renowned institutions, such as the Chicago History Museum, Adler Planetarium, the Hyde Park Arts Center, UIC, University of Chicago, the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, and world-renowned new-media artists.

 

Sustainably designed with LEED-Gold Certification, and with unique technology infrastructure as the only Class A+ Wired-Platinum building in Chicago, 150 N Riverside was designed with the objective of setting a new market standard for transit-oriented development.
