Photographer's Note

875 North Michigan Avenue, formerly the John Hancock Center, is a 100-story, 1,128-foot supertall skyscraper located in Chicago. Located in the Magnificent Mile district, its name was changed to 875 North Michigan Avenue on February 12, 2018. However, the building is still colloquially called the John Hancock Center.


It was constructed under the supervision of Skidmore, Owings and Merrill, with Peruvian-American chief designer Bruce Graham and Bangladeshi structural engineer Fazlur Rahman Khan. It is currently the fourth-tallest building in Chicago and the ninth-tallest in the United States.

From the 95th floor restaurant, diners can look out at Chicago and Lake Michigan. The 360º Chicago Observation Deck has a 360° view of the city, up to four states, and a distance of over 80 miles (130 km). 360º Chicago is home to TILT, a moving platform that leans visitors over the edge of the skyscraper to a 30-degree angle, a full bar with local selections, Chicago's only open-air SkyWalk, and also features free interactive high definition touch screens in six languages.

The 44th-floor sky lobby features America's highest indoor swimming pool.
