John Hancock Center
Situated at 875 North Michigan Avenue, the John Hancock Center is one of the tallest skyscrapers of Illinois. Standing tall at 459 meter, the building is 7th tallest structure in the United States of America. Named after John Hancock Mutual Life Insurance Company, one of the developers and initial tenants, the building is popular among tourists as "Big John". A perfect concrete complex featuring structural expressionist style, the John Hancock Center's X-bracing on its exterior is the part of a well devised tabular system. This very architectural technique enabled the architects to raise the building to a record height and achieve higher performance along with a spacious floor plan. One of the founding members of the World Federation of Great Towers, the John Hancock Center has won many accolades for its unique design and architectural brilliance.
John Hancock Center - Highlights
The large building complex is home to restaurants, offices, and more than seven hundred condominiums. The 95th floor is famous for its beautiful restaurant, with the signature room offering splendid views of the Lake Michigan and Chicago. Meanwhile, the 44th floor is known for the country's highest ever indoor swimming pool. A lobby was added to the building in the year 1995. Spectacularly furnished, the plaza features large murals and a beautiful waterfall. Tourists also throng the John Hancock Center Observatory, which is in direct competition to the Wills Tower Skydeck. The observatory offers 360° view of four states, located within the distance of 80 miles. In addition, the observatory includes Chicago's exclusive open-air Sky Walk. While John Hancock Center is immensely popular with leisure tourists, the Wills Tower attracts business travelers due to its proximity to the financial district.
