The Wolf Point project, once home to the city's initial commercial settlements and later an underutilized parking lot, has undergone a 14-year transformation, overseen by Pelli Clarke & Partners and developed by Hines.

Architectural Highlights and Amenities

The Salesforce Tower spans 1.2 million square feet and showcases glass-clad volumes of varying heights, integrated to form a central focal point. Its ground level features a double-height lobby enclosed in transparent glass, seamlessly linking to a nearby park and an expanded riverfront promenade. Additionally, the base houses retail and dining spaces, alongside underground parking equipped with extensive bike storage facilities.

An outstanding feature of the tower is its top two floors, referred to as the Ohana Floors, which host office events on weekdays and serve local non-profits during evenings and weekends. Furthermore, the building holds LEED-Gold certification, reflecting a reduction in carbon emissions achieved through innovative construction methods.

Salesforce Tower Chicago sets a precedent as the first building in the city to meet the stringent Environmental Product Declarations. Occupied primarily by Salesforce offices and the law firm Kirkland & Ellis, it stands as a remarkable addition to Chicago's skyline.
