River Point Office Tower
- Jul 29, 2013
River Point is a state-of-the-art 45-story office tower located in Chicago's downtown West Loop (Lake and Canal Streets) along the west back of the Chicago River. The building is designed by Pickard Chilton Architects, and provides approximately 900,000 square feet of space. The project also includes a 1.5-acre public riverfront park and riverfront plaza (seating areas on the plaza and river levels), a 160-car garage, retail amenities, a fitness center, and a building conference center.
The building sits on 75 caissons that support the plaza structure and the tower. Epoxy-coated reinforcing steel is being used in the lower areas to protect against corrosion.
The building has been awarded LEED Pre-Certified Gold 2008.
