Insider's Tour - The Best of the Third Coast: Tour of Tribune Tower & Architectural Center Boat Cruise

Date SEPT. 21, 2022
Time 10 AM – 4 PM (CDT)

First stop, Tribune Tower:

Containing 162 luxury residences and over 55,000 square feet of amazing amenity space, the Tribune Tower Residences, developed by CIM Group and Golub & Company, sits at the gateway of one of the world’s most prominent avenues. The design of Tribune Tower was the result of an international competition announced by the Chicago Tribune in 1922. Nearly a century later, the soaring vertical lines and flying buttresses of the winning entry are undiminished in their power to draw the eye. In its rebirth as Tribune Tower Residences, the building’s original design elements have been carefully and respectfully restored to preserve its dramatic impact.

Second stop, Lunch at Volare Ristorante Italiano, a long-time Chicago favorite Italian restaurant.

Final stop, Chicago Architecture Center River Cruise:

Voted the #1 boat tour in North America according to USA Today Readers' Choice 2021 Awards, for more than 25 years, the CAC's expertly trained docent volunteers have led the river cruise, sharing fascinating stories behind more than 50 buildings along the Chicago River. Hear how Chicago grew from a small settlement into one of the world's largest cities in less than 100 years. In just 90 minutes, you'll get the best overview of Chicago’s architecture and its history.
