150 North Riverside
The building's façade has a rippling texture, created by undulating fins affixed at each vertical mullion in the unitized curtain wall system. A dramatic lobby, nearly 100 feet tall at its peak and surrounded by a structural glass fin wall system, welcomes visitors and visually connect the interior and exterior. In addition to office space, 150 North Riverside features a 7,000 square-foot fitness center, and conference facilities, including a 260-person ballroom/meeting space and two boardrooms.
The 54-story tower is nestled between the Chicago River and an existing building; seven active railroad tracks run directly through the site, and two elevated roadways border the tower's east side. Despite challenging site logistics, the team was able to keep the project on schedule by developing a floating platform system that allowed them to place a crane on a barge in the river.

Clark also performed significant city infrastructure improvements, reconstructing the site's riverwall and upgrading several traffic and pedestrian signals. The project's riverwalk is linked to River Point Plaza – the city's new riverfront pedestrian walkway system, which Clark also constructed. Adding to the project's complexity, the site is located over seven active commuter and Amtrak rail lines.
150 North Riverside is pre-certified LEED® Gold and is designed to minimize energy consumption while maximizing light and air, open space, and the overall quality of the tenant work environment. In addition to the plaza-level open space, the tower features 100 percent green roof space.
