It's been about nine months since we last updated you about construction at 150 North Riverside in Chicago. Back then, the concrete core had topped out, but steel assembly and cladding application was still being performed. In the time since, the exterior has been largely completed, with work now moving onto the surrounding landscaping program.

Developed by Riverside Investment & Development Company with a design by Goettsch Partners, the 53-storey office tower only occupies a quarter of the property. Its narrow base creates the conditions for a relatively small footprint, which will be surrounded by a public park mandated by the City of Chicago.

The 1.2 million square feet of office space will be augmented by a solid suite of amenities curated to enhance the workplace environment. An 8,500-square-foot fitness centre, riverfront conference facilities, two boardroom/AV spaces, private terraces, and roof decks are among the development's notable conveniences.

The building's curtain wall facade, pinstripe fins, and unique structural expression are striking enough from the outside, but an interior tour late last year by Forum contributor harryc revealed the complicated inner workings of the site. Together with River Point, 150 North Riverside is one of the biggest skyscrapers to be constructed in Chicago over the last decade.
