Madison Plaza is a skyscraper in Chicago, Illinois. The building rises 599 feet (182 m) in the Chicago Loop. It contains 45 floors, and was completed in 1982. Madison Plaza currently stands as the 36th-tallest building in the city. The architectural firm who designed the building was Skidmore, Owings & Merrill, the same firm who designed Chicago's Willis Tower and John Hancock Center and the Burj Khalifa in Dubai.
Madison Plaza was designed with a "sawtooth edge", and incorporates six corners onto the southeast face of the building. Thus, the building has nine corner offices on most of its floors. Madison Plaza was originally proposed to have a twin tower located on the lot situated south of the tower. However, plans for a second tower were ultimately abandoned. Six years later, in 1988, the Miglin-Beitler Skyneedle was proposed for construction on the same lot, adjacent to Madison Plaza. Plans called for 125-story tower that was to rise 2,000 ft (610 m). However, that plan was also eventually cancelled. The lot is now the site of a parking garage.
>>NOTE: Madison Plaza is also a plaza in New York, at the corner of Madison and Pearl, near Chatham Square. https://web.archive.org/web/20110428050942/http://www.lowermanhattan.info/construction/project_updates/james_madison_plaza_reconstruction_54332.aspx
