Overview


The River East Arts Center was originally the North Pier Terminal building and was constructed by the Chicago Dock and Canal Company between 1905-1920 along the Ogden Slip, an industrial harbor and tributary of the Chicago River. Originally 1,500 feet in length, the structure was gradually diminished by the development of Lake Shore Drive, Lake Point Tower, North Pier Tower and Navy Pier. Currently over 700 feet long, the building was renovated in 1988 into office, retail and event space to serve the burgeoning community of River East.

GREC Architects was commissioned in 2006 to plan and design the adaptive re-use of the newly-branded River East Art Center to loft condominiums with a two-story vertical addition, following the conversion of the grade and slip levels to art galleries, artist studios, restaurant and retail use. Featuring heavy timber structure, exposed masonry and 11-14 foot ceiling heights, over-sized one and two-bedroom loft units have unsurpassed views of Lake Michigan, Chicago’s Loop and the Chicago River.
