Chicago Aqua Tower

Soaring into the skies of the Windy City’s East Lakeshore neighborhood, Aqua Tower comprises 86 floors topped with an 82,500 square foot terrace replete with pools, gazebos and running tracks. Notable not only for its Great Lakes-inspired undulating limestone slabs, Aqua Tower is also the tallest building in the world whose lead architect was a woman.
