Description

Behind the signature round windows on the top floor of the historic Railway Exchange Building is the home of architecture firm Goettsch Partners. With offices in Chicago, Shanghai and Abu Dhabi, the firm has completed a range of prominent projects across five continents. Local completed projects include the gravity-defying 150 North Riverside office tower along the Chicago River, the vertically expanded Blue Cross Blue Shield Headquarters, the Northwestern University Ryan Center for the Musical Arts, the Viceroy, Langham and LondonHouse Chicago hotels, the Wrigley Building Renovation, the Union Station Great Hall Restoration, and the Zurich North America Headquarters. Work under construction includes the 110 North Wacker office tower on the site of the former GGP headquarters and the full-block One Chicago development across from Holy Name Cathedral.

Visitor Experience

Tour the incredible 17th floor and enjoy sweeping views of Grant Park and the lakefront through unique porthole windows. Goettsch staff will give visitors a sneak peek at some of the firm’s current work.
