Wolf Point West

Chicago, Illinois

 

This is the first phase of a three-phase master plan for this prominent site at the confluence of the Main, North, and South branches of the Chicago River.

Our team collaborated on the master plan and entitlements phase, and continued our involvement in the final design and detailing for this initial phase of construction. The four primary components of our work on the site include the driveway/drop-off zone, the East garden, the riverbank (including a terraced turf amphitheater and a heavily landscaped riverbank), and the riverwalk.

The entry drive is a central amenity designed to provide access to this initial tower and will eventually also serve the future East and South towers. A large garden area is placed within the drop-off loop and includes provision for a future water feature. The East garden consists of a paved pathway through a series of outdoor rooms. The West garden transitions from the activity of the drop-off zone to the quieter riverbank/riverwalk zones. The terraced turf amphitheater integrates 15 feet of grade change from the East garden to the riverwalk and is oriented toward the confluence of the three branches of the river.
