222 South Riverside Plaza | CHICAGO | 137 m | 35 floors

222 South Riverside Plaza
Chicago, United States

HEIGHT: 450 ft/137 m
FLOORS: 35 (above ground)
COMPLETION: 1971
ARCHITECT: Skidmore, Owings & Merrill

This white modernist skyscraper is located in Downtown Chicago, in the Near West Side community, next to the Chicago River. It is adjacent to the Union Station, and has direct access to the underground tracks that lay underneath it. It is also known as the Fifth Third Center or Gateway Center III.

When my dad took me to his office, we would pass through this building on our way from the Union Station to his office. I have many memories of this building: coming in from the tracks, taking cereal boxes from advertisers, and emerging from the interior and seeing pigeons eating dropped morsels. My dad also says there's a Chinese food vendor who shouts, "Yummy, yummy, right here!" Such an exciting place!

I vote 8/10!
