Millennium Centre is a postmodern[1] skyscraper in Chicago, Illinois in the city's Near North Side neighborhood. The building rises 610 feet (186 m).[2] It contains 59 floors,[1] and was completed in 2003. The architectural firm who designed the building was Solomon Cordwell Buenz & Associates.[2] Millennium Centre notably sold over 95% of its 350[1] residential units in September 2000, only two days after the developer had released information about the proposed structure; this occurred before the building had even been approved for construction by the City of Chicago.[3] The building's design incorporates a high-rise park on the roof of the 14th floor, with six two-story townhomes circling the park. Millennium Centre is topped off by a 10-foot (3 m) illuminated spire, which is included in the building's structural height.[2]
