The tower portion of Cityfront Place, 400 N McClurg Ct, is rotated at a 45-degree angle from the building’s parking podium.
The reason for the rotation is easy to understand: it maximized the views from the apartments in all directions. The above aerial shots should allow you to get a fairly good fix on the view corridors.
The view northwest from Cityfront Place has changed dramatically since it was fronted by a vacant lot when we shot the first of the above pics 16 months ago. 435 North Park has risen only a little more than halfway to its eventual 52-story height, but it’s already blocking the northwest view from Cityfront Place.
The river views will be gorgeous for a long time to come.
