The Franklin was constructed in two parts: first in 1989, and was completed with the construction of 222 West Adams Street in 1992. The Franklin rises 60 stories high and includes below-grade parking. The building has over 1,500,000 square feet of rentable space with varying floor plans. The Franklin was designed by the world-renowned, Chicago-based architectural firm Skidmore, Owings & Merrill. The Franklin last underwent a large-scale renovation in 2015 when the lobby was refreshed with more modern finishes. That project was said to have cost $27.5 million.
