The Contemporaine Condominium with 11-story residential tower in Chicago by Perkins+Will

Nestled at 516 North Wells Chicago, Illinois this winner of Housing Committee Award, 2006 from AIA, an engaging public space building is called Contemporaine. Built as 28-unit, 96,000 square foot condominium was highlighted by an impressive 45-foot column supporting the tower above. The dynamics of the Contemporaine begin at the entrance, which is literally carved out at the street corner. Other than residential, the Contemporaine also complete with a four-story retail and parking base below the 11-story residential tower. Tight site restrictions required innovative design solutions, and the architects Perkins+Will have break the challenge perfectly. And the result is the base of the building fills the entire lot yet achieves a pedestrian scale, while mirroring the tower above, the structure of the parking garage is exposed with floor-to-ceiling glass.
