Designed by Goettsch Partners, 150 North Riverside rises 54 stories on the eastern edge of a two-acre site on the Chicago River's west bank. The building features 1.2 million square feet of leasable office space, but due to its unique superstructure design, will only encompass 25 percent of the lot. The remaining 75 percent of the project site contains a public park, amphitheater, and riverwalk.

The building's façade has a rippling texture, created by undulating fins affixed at each vertical mullion in the unitized curtain wall system. A dramatic lobby, nearly 100 feet tall at its peak and surrounded by a structural glass fin wall system, welcomes visitors and visually connect the interior and exterior. In addition to office space, 150 North Riverside features a 7,000 square-foot fitness center, and conference facilities, including a 260-person ballroom/meeting space and two boardrooms.

Clark also performed significant city infrastructure improvements, reconstructing the site's riverwall, upgrading several traffic and pedestrian signals, and linking the project's riverwalk to River Point Plaza – the city's new riverfront pedestrian walkway system, which Clark also constructed. Adding to the project's complexity, the site is located over seven active commuter and Amtrak rail lines.

The project has been pre-certified LEED® Gold and is designed to minimize energy consumption while maximizing light and air, open space, and the overall quality of the tenant work environment. In addition to the plaza-level open space, the tower features 100 percent green roof space.
