2024 June In-Person Meeting

June 13 @ 5:00 pm - 9:00 pm

400 Lake Shore Drive

Presented by: Ryan Culligan, AIA  and Brad Young (Skidmore, Owings & Merrill)

Rising at the confluence of Lake Michigan and the Chicago River, 400 Lake Shore Drive will reshape the skyline with two towers reaching nearly 900 feet, articulated with terraces that cascade down the eastern facades. Tapering in both plan and section, the towers frame a view of the lake, while angling back towards the cityscape. The classic “Chicago window”—a bay window design that is a hallmark of the city’s historic architecture—is re-imagined as a shallow bay of floor-to-ceiling glass, with metal detailing that evokes the rippling surface of Lake Michigan.

A plaza between the two towers will mark the end of Water Street, featuring amenities, public art, and spaces for residents and guests within a two-story podium. 400 Lake Shore will redefine the north edge of Chicago’s Riverwalk, with open spaces and pedestrian routes connecting to the planned DuSable Park. With views encompassing the lakefront, cityscape, and the river, this site, once home to Chicago’s pioneering figure Jean-Baptiste Pointe DuSable, will become a legacy shared with future generations of Chicagoans.

This meeting will take place at:

Waterview

350 W Wolff Point Plaza
15th Floor,
Chicago, IL 60654

The committee meeting will start at the usual time 5:00 pm in the Waterview Lounge with drinks and appetizers. At 6:00 pm we will adjourn to the LaSalle Room for our business meeting and technical presentation.
