Area: 540,600 square feet (Kinzie Park Tower)
Site & Program: The Kinzie Park development is located along the Chicago River. Nagle Hartray designed two condominium towers that frame the linear residential development.
Design: The stepped and curved façade of the completed 34-story, 208-unit Kinzie Park Tower maximizes views of downtown.
The unusual wall geometry distinguishes Kinzie Park from the concrete-box buildings that are its competition and creates unique unit plans uncommon for this typically repetitive housing type.
Balconies carved from stepped corners create strong shadows that add human scale. The stepped façades also define the building’s distinctive profile against the sky. A brick base conceals parking and relates to adjacent townhouse units.
