300 N. Michigan Chicago

Chicago, IL

Located at 300 North Michigan Avenue, this 47-story residential and micro hotel tower anchors the corner of this prominent Chicago city block. The base of the building accommodates a large retail space within its refined and transparent façade. The tower seems to float above the street as the exposed structural truss becomes a stated expression of the shift in program between the base and tower. This expression in the building massing makes a gesture to the Michigan Avenue street wall and provides the building with a stated direction.

The aesthetic of the tower’s façade is defined by the clean, continuous lines that wrap the building form. The scale of the patterning of these linear lines shifts in response to the building’s program. The top of the eastern portion of the tower sets back to create a spectacular amenity terrace for the residents that overlooks Millennium Park and Michigan Avenue.
