Noteworthy Facts

• The shell-like illuminated ribbed curve that forms the roof of the lobby is actually the underside of the building's parking garage ramp.
• This location was formerly the location of the U.S. Gypsum Building. At the time of its demolition, it was the tallest building to be torn down in Chicago.
• The lobby is 44 feet tall
• The distance between exterior columns on the office levels is up to 40 feet
• The distance between exterior columns at the lobby level is 80 feet, as diagonal columns on the floors above transfer the weight of the building into half as many columns.
