200 North Riverside Plaza, also known as River Point, is a 50 story 732 ft (213 m) tall skyscraper currently under construction in Chicago, Illinois. The 50 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.[1]

The anchor tenant is the law firm McDermott Will & Emery and will occupy 225,000 sq ft of office space.[2]

The land on which this tower is being constructed is also known as River Point as it lies at a point in the Chicago River where the north and south branches form.

As required by the city of Chicago, the building will also include a public park and 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.
