In the 19th century, Chicago built the world’s first modern skyscraper. In the 20th century, we created a world-renowned skyline. And today, Chicago aspires to make that skyline the most efficient on the planet.

Building Description

Fifth Third Center at 222 South Riverside Plaza is situated on the West bank of the Chicago River, a premium location in the city’s central business district and directly above Chicago’s busy Union Station. This 35 story 1.2 million square foot office tower features 35,000 square foot floor plates that provide abundant natural light. Over the past few years a majority of the building’s lights have been retrofitted to energy efficient lighting, and a water reclamation project has been completed, where the condensate water from our high rise supply fans has been reclaimed for use in our cooling towers.  The building completed the ComEd Retro-Commissioning Project in 2012.
