The Streeterville condos for rent at 875 North Michigan Ave are an architectural icon of a building that stands 100 stories tall and has helped shape the legacy of tall buildings in Chicago and around the world.

Renters will quickly recognize the distinct shape of 875 N. Michigan, known for many years as The John Hancock Center, and it remains one of the top 5 tallest buildings in Chicago.
This brawny skyscraper set a new template for supertall buildings, easy to spot but difficult to forget. The structural steel supports criss-cross the outside of the tower and creates distinctive X shapes. But these are more than just a visual accent: the cross beams reinforce the skyscraper and allow for open floor plans that don’t need additional support columns. This structural engineering innovation created excellent sightlines and wide-open views for condo renters at 875 N. Michigan.
