SPECIAL RECOGNITION: Two North Riverside, Chicago, Ill.

November 09, 2011 |

Two North Riverside is a 26-story Art Deco building by Holabird & Root that for years housed the Chicago Daily News. It was the first air-rights structure in Chicago, and its plaza was the first to be planned as part of a privately owned office building.

In mid-2008, Equity Office Properties retained Chicago design firm Solomon Cordwell Buenz to lead the renovation of two Art Deco lobbies, a retail concourse, 13 passenger elevator cabs, and multi-tenant common areas.
