300 North LaSalle opens to further punctuate Chicago's skyline
Non-confrontational yet forceful in its design, Pickard Chilton has designed a new lasting landmark for Chicago's skyline in the recently opened 300 North LaSalle.
At 1.3 million gross sq ft and almost 60 stories high, the tower is a gentle giant and merges into its surrounding high-rise scape with ease retaining a classic outline and sympathetic detailing.
Housing nearly 60 floors of offices and several restaurants and retail outlets, the development has become a new hub for the bustling business district. Not least of the features contributing to the ambiance is the public space integrated into the design which offers both workers and the public a space for reflection and calm. Beside the river half an acre of public parkland and landscaped terraces have been developed to escape the hubbub. For further escapism workers have a half green roof to observe the ants below.
