Chicago River North enjoys an excellent waterside location overlooking downtown Chicago with views to Lake Michigan and the Chicago River. It is located in the 35-story Riverfront Plaza on the North bank of the river. The building has a landscaped park at its base leading to a promenade walk on the river front, and is recognized internationally as a premier example of Chicago's modern architectural heritage. While the center enjoys all the benefits of being located in the upscale neighbourhood of River North, downtown Chicago is just across the river and it enjoys equally good access to affluent Michigan Avenue North - better known as Chicago's One Magnificent Mile. This superb positioning offers access to the huge range financial institutions, businesses, organisations, government offices and institutions operating in the central parts of a city that enjoys total trade in excess of $120 billion a year.
