Elegantly resolving issues of context and scale in the mixed-used River North neighborhood, four stories of retail and garage space stand as pedestal to an 11-story residential volume of concrete and glass. The building is at once remarkably light and refined.

Balconies extend outward and multi-story reveals are carved into the main form, recalling to jurors the elaborate yet economical structure of a skeleton. “The whole program is expressed in the building’s different facades,” praised a juror. The building can be clearly read as a series of combined parts of varying scales, addressing the neighborhood’s mix of converted warehouses, low-rise retail, and newer residential towers.
