  • When the City of Chicago designated this block for residential development in the 1970's, the CTA envisioned building a Central Area Subway line running underneath Kingsbury Street.
  • This building was considered phase two of the Kingsbury Plaza project.
  • The shape of this building was inspired by the design of a 1960's skyscraper in Paris.
  • The exterior balconies are broken up into groups to form visual "neighborhoods" in the sky.
  • When this building was first built, the undersides of the bays were painted orange. Paint was used so that the color could be changed over the years.
  • Because of the design of the building, almost every residence is a corner unit.
  • May 2013: This building topped out.
  • First occupancy: October, 2013
