City reflection - From NBC Tower, United States
The City reflection and NBC Tower in Chicago, Illinois is an iconic structure situated on the north bank of the Chicago River. The building stands at 845 feet tall, making it the third-tallest building in the United States. It was designed by architect Adrian Smith, and constructed in 1989. The building features 92 stories of commercial and retail space and has one of the most recognizable tops in the world - a three-story steel antenna with an illuminated NBC peacock spire. In addition to its unique design, the tower boasts spectacular views of the Chicago skyline with its westward-facing aluminum-paned balconies on many upper floors. Transportation to the building is accessible from the Grand Avenue Blue Line and Pink Line train station, which is a few blocks west of the site. Visitors can also take a boat tour of the building at designated times, or observe it from the banks of the Chicago River.
