150 N Riverside beat by New York towers for best building award

The American Copper Buildings, a New York residential project designed by SHoP Architects and developed by JDS Development, won the Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat (CTBUH) award for Best Tall Buildings Americas. 150 N. Riverside in Chicago, alongside one building in Quito, Ecuador and two others in New York, were the finalists for the category. The American Copper Buildings is a uniquely shaped structure, clad in copper. The development houses over 700 residences and boasts an impressive amenity package that includes a lap pool, fitness center, spa, and lounge. After observing the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, SHoP and JDS made sure to design and build American Copper to resist flooding and other extreme weather conditions.
