CHICAGO | MoMo | 409ft | 31 fl | Com

Height: 409 ft
Floor count: 31
Location: North State and East Randolph
Construction end: 2007
Architect: Booth Hansen Associates
Developer: Smithfield Properties LLC


Website

Joffrey Tower (aka MoMo) has recently entered the under construction phase of its development. The 409 ft, 31 story residential building will be located just south of the Chicago Theatre on the corner of State and Randolph, replacing a Walgreens that had previously occupied the site. The architects are Randolph Court and Market Hall Tower. While this building was still in its proposed and approved stages, it was named MoMo, for "Modern Momentum." After the Joffrey Ballet bought the bottom two floors last December, MoMo was renamed Joffrey Tower. Construction is expected to be completed by 2007. If you want any further information, click the link above, which will take you the building's official website.

^It's one of my favorites as well. It will definitely freshen up the State Steet canyon.

What was there before? It's always good to see new buildings adding density to a city.

I like the unique design of the building with that "open" area at the bottom.
