River Point High-Rise and Tenant Improvement

Chicago, Illinois

Office Tower: 1.1 Million GSF, Park: 1.5 acres, Parking: 1,650 stalls

River Point sets the standard for ultramodern office space in Chicago. The 52-story office tower is ideally located in Chicago’s downtown West Loop on the edge of the Chicago River. The project also includes a 1.5 acre plaza and river walk covering the existing rail tracks and opening the site to a new river walk. River Point will create unparalleled work space in Chicago by featuring an advanced fitness center, a formal restaurant, and three levels of underground parking. The project offers dramatic world-class architecture, efficient interior design, and outstanding views from all of the office floors. Alvine Engineering completed the core and shell and continues to provide improved spaces in River Point to accommodate the needs of tenants.


  • Pre-certified LEED Gold.
  • By utilizing a condensate water collection system, 1.5 to 2 million gallons of potable water will be saved annually rather than used for irrigation of the outdoor plaza.
  • The building management and control system is an electronic-based direct digital control micro-processor based system. The system is configured with two local area networks; a management level network and a field level network.
  • The 1.1 million-square-foot building will provide efficient 27,000-square-foot typical floor plates, with maximum space planning flexibility for the large user.
