Award Winning Architecture
Skybridge was designed in the Modernist style by Ralph Johnson of Perkins and Will. Johnson is also well known for designing O’Hare Airport’s International Terminal.
The building won the American Institute of Architects’ 2003 National Honor Award.
We love the sleek Modernist design of Skybridge condos. The building actually looks like two slender towers linked by a daring glass bridge at most levels.
Besides just being cool, the design is practical in that it allows most units to enjoy multiple exposures making for brighter living even on overcast Chicago days.
Located at 737 W Washington (original address was 1 N Halsted) in the West Loop, Skybridge initially didn’t really fit in with the low and mid-rise loft buildings in the neighborhood. In fact, given its height it was a tad controversial to say the least.
Even today it remains the tallest building in Chicago west of 90/94. That said, with all the construction in the area over the past 15 years, Skybridge is no longer standing tall by itself as other high rises have been built or are currently under construction nearby.
Regardless of how you call it – Skybridge Condos, 1 N Halsted or 737 W Washington, the building is ideally located in the eastern portion of Chicago’s amazing West Loop neighborhood.
