A New Skyscraper Opens in The Loop

It’s been a while since anyone cut the ribbon on a new office tower in the throbbing heart of Chicago.  So we’re happy to swing a scimitar at a bottle of bubbly to celebrate the opening of 110 North Wacker.

We’ve been keeping you updated on the Howard Hughes/Riverside Investment and Development skyscraper for almost four years now, ever since the notion was floated to tear down the Mid-Century office shed that used to be on this site, and go vertical in a big way.

Goettsch Partners grabbed its beret palette to splash this building to life, a visual sibling to 150 North Riverside, just across the river, and soon to be second-cousin to the BMO Tower five blocks and a river away.

110 North Wacker is 55-stories tall, boasting 1,500,000 square feet of rentable space. It also adds another link to the chain of promenades that make up the Chicago Riverwalk.  

Depending on how a company builds out its space, a floor of 110 can have up to 14 corner offices.  So if you work in this building and don’t have a corner office, that means there are at least 14 people more important than you in the company.

Location: 110 North Wacker Drive, The Loop
