Glass installation for the 60-story Salesforce Tower at 333 W Wolf Point Plaza is nearly complete. The 850-foot-tall, office-oriented skyscraper by Hines is approaching its anticipated 2023 completion, and already stands out as a cornerstone of the expanding northwest skyline. Featuring a neomodernist design by Pelli Clarke & Partners, the tower is outfitted with a tapered setback massing and a predominantly glass facade.
The skyscraper is part of a three-part mega-development by Hines known as Wolf Point. Located at the confluence of the Chicago River, this scheme also includes a 500-foot apartment tower known as Wolf Point West, as well as a 679-foot apartment tower dubbed Wolf Point East. Together, the three towers are creating a mixed-use complex with over 1,200 residential units and 1.4 million square feet of commercial space.
Office floor plates will span 25,000 square feet, and will include flexible build-out options and floor-to-ceiling windows offering sweeping city views. Amenity spaces will include a fitness center, a conference center, and a tenant lounge. As suggested by the name of the project, Salesforce has already signed on as the anchor tenant, leasing 500,000 square feet of space in the building.
The Salesforce Tower site is located in Chicago’s River North neighborhood, an area known for its nightlife and dining options. The Wolf Point parcel is also adjacent to a number of public transportation options, including the Merchandise Mart CTA stop for the Brown and Purple Lines stop and multiple bus lines such as Routes 37 and 125.
The $800 million edifice is targeting LEED Gold certification, with construction being carried out by Walsh Group.
