Fairbanks Towers - Chicago, IL
The Fairbanks Towers, located in the heart of Chicago, is a residential tower that was long anticipated. Terra5 was used for the podium of this 31 story building. The grocery store and a coffee shop opened prior to when the tower began to rise above it.
The completed tower is in the shape of two convex curves with the residential space in between. The upper facade is blue glass, which is a nice change for the western portion of this neighborhood, which is dominated by stone-clad towers. The lower 5 stories featured grey terracotta panels.
