130 North Franklin

Chicago, IL 


Rising 50 stories above Chicago’s West Loop, the elegant shape and proportion of this stunning glass tower incorporate the latest advancements in building-skin technology. The faceted shape of the façade provides views both perpendicular and parallel to the street grid.

Envelope performance — the ultimate in sustainable design, and a dynamically articulated glass-clad exterior open the world to the building’s occupants while flooding workspaces with an abundance of daylight. 

Encompassing the entire Franklin Street block, the façade is complemented by two open landscaped plazas that enliven the streetscape and provide respite. At ground level, the lobby is set back creating a covered arcade that connects into plazas and accentuates the building’s vertical rise. The lobby soars 50 feet high, flooded with natural light. Far above the street, the seventh-floor landscaped SkyPark becomes a unique on-site conference center and destination for tenants to gather. 

Heralding a new generation of the workplace, the design is shaped to yield a higher ratio of perimeter access to daylight.
