It’s all about the angles with this one. ABN AMRO Plaza has some of the most daring angles in the city. Acute angles and points, not merely squares define the space of this building. And as if to reinforce the message, the building is capped by a floating framework that juts out at its most precipitous points. An apex upon this trapezoid-shaped building’s apexes. Such a building could have easily resulted in something resembling a science fiction cartoon. But the execution here was very well done, transforming what could have been another vaguely-1990’s glass block into a building that defines its own style, rather than follows the lead of others.

Quick Facts
Notes
  • The City of Chicago approved a second twin tower for this building, but it was never built. Instead, the property where it would have gone remains a surface parking lot.
Green Things
  • This building is certified LEED-EB Gold.

There are two comments.

  New lobby layout does not fit the the existing design. Wrong color light fixtures and fake plank flooring through the lobby. A new bar opened in the past year and that decor is even worse.

  I like the way this building was designed. The angle is really strange, but in a good way. The half crosses at the top reminds me of Erie On The Park. Very shiny exterior on a clear day.
