This apartment tower is in terms of architectural style a part of the wider urban context of Towers of America, sharing the form and volume with the four surrounding buildings. The towers composing the complex differ in form and orientation. The vertical repetition of classical bay windows gives the complex facade a textural, pleated look at the same time respecting the traditions of early Chicago school skyscrapers and staying contemporary with the building materialization. The complex layout follows the river bank becoming its integral part, rightfully bearing the name Riverside.
