Fakten

  • Located at the northwest corner of Grant Park, on the former site of the John Crerar Library.
  • The top of the building is oriented toward the lakefront, and is often said to resemble a sailboat.
  • The southeast section is cut away at the base, except for a triangular column containing a public stairway to the nearby Metra train station.
  • The diamond-shaped slope is outlined with white light bulbs. Around holidays they used to be replaced with colored lights.
  • On special occasions the windows inside the diamond are lit in patterns spelling short messages or sports team names.The building appears to be split diagonally down the middle.
  • The right and left sides are slightly disjointed, and at the top they are actually separated by a gap.
  • The official count of 41 floors does not include five levels of unused space in the narrowest portion at the top of the diamond.
  • The building was originally planned to be five stories taller.
  • The building's designer was Sheldon Schlegman of A. Epstein & Sons.
  • Originally planned as One Parke Place, this was billed as the world's first computerized office building.
  • The service cores are rotated 45° from the street grid, producing diagonally-oriented office floorplans which take advantage of the extraordinary southeast views.
  • A sculpture by Yaakov Agam once occuppied the triangular niche at street level. Called "Communication-X9," its colorful geometric patterns would change when the viewer walked past.
  • This building was featured prominately in the 1987 motion picture "Adventures in Babysitting" starring Elisabeth Shue.
