Join us to tour and learn about one of the newest Class A commercial high rise to come on line in Chicago.  The evening will include a presentation by the Architect and the Structural Engineer for the project and a tour of the site and selected areas within the building.  Learn what went into building on a very challenging site and how the site influenced the design of the building.  Gain insight as to the political process of building within the City and how tradeoffs are made between public and private spaces.
