400 Lake Shore Drive has been meticulously designed to reflect its setting – where the Chicago River meets Lake Michigan, on a site that once was home to Chicago’s founder, Jean-Baptiste Pointe DuSable.

The project’s sister towers, designed by David Childs with SOM, will vary in height and be set at a slight angle to one another, forming a gateway that offers spectacular views along the lakefront and river corridors. Both buildings will be constructed of glass and stone, with intricate metal detailing. Another hallmark of the Chicago School – the “Chicago window” – will be reinterpreted through a series of bay windows.

Reminiscent of a waterfall, the cascading silhouette of each tower will form expansive outdoor terraces that extend individual residences beyond their walls. Placed at carefully proportioned intervals, these outdoor living areas will present a rare opportunity to enjoy sweeping, 180-degree views of the adjacent lakefront, river and cityscape.

The space between the towers will transform with each angle, sometimes framing a nearby building or opening a view to the sky above. Adjacent to the towers, an extended Riverwalk will bridge the gap between downtown and the lakefront, connecting to a reimagined DuSable Park.
