About the Building
The work of internationally known architect Dirk Lohan, grandson of Mies van der Rohe, the striking and expansive stone and glass structure rises six stories above the Chicago River. In a nod to the Chicago School of Architecture, light plays an important role in the building’s look and feel. The five-story atrium inside, as well as the glass-enclosed lounges on the ends of each floor that extend out from the building, provide an open and airy feeling. The lounges also visually connect Gleacher Center to the river and the city.
