River Point, previously known as 200 North Riverside Plaza, is a 52 story 213 m tall skyscraper currently under construction in Chicago, Illinois. The 52 floor building will have 92,900 m² of floors space. It is being developed by Hines and designed by Pickard Chilton. A groundbreaking ceremony was held for the tower in January 2013. The building is seeking Gold LEED certification. The building became the headquarters of Morton Salt in December 2016. The anchor tenant is the law firm McDermott Will & Emery and will occupy 225,000 sq ft of office space. Mead Johnson will also relocate its headquarters from suburban Glenview to the building. The land on which this tower is being constructed is known as River Point because it lies at the point where the North and South branches of the Chicago River form. As required by the city of Chicago, the building will also include a 1.5 acres public park and a landscaped riverwalk that is open to the public. To accommodate the land required for the public park and river walk it will be built on top of a set of active railroad tracks.
