River North is bustling with new developments, award winning restaurants and shopping opportunities. It is the ideal destination for tenants and visitors seeking a vibrant live/work/play environment. Just across the Chicago River from the Loop, River North is an urban neighborhood where you'll find a well-established center for the art community brimming with galleries, production companies, photography studios and interior design businesses, as well as some of Chicago's most famous architecture. For instance, the iconic Wrigley Building anchors the southern tip of River North with its striking, white terra-cotta exterior and ornate, upper-level stone work. A newer addition to the neighborhood, the Trump Hotel & Tower serves as a culinary site as well as the home to some of the most gorgeous condos in the city. Marina City, more aptly known as the Corn Cob Towers, was a pioneering innovation when it was constructed in the 1960s. It combined living space and convenient services into a mini-city contained within the complex a concept regularly incorporated in today's modern developments.
