- The developers agreed to repurpose the Morton Salt Building’s stainless steel panels on the new building’s terrace and dock levels. The goal will be to help maintain a pedestrian scale for the building’s base and prominently integrate the historic material where it will remain visible to the public.
- Plaques to commemorate the Morton Salt Company history will be installed at the plaza and river levels.
- A study of the Morton Salt Building’s architecture will be commissioned by the development team, and will be donated to the research collections at the Art Institute of Chicago’s Ryerson and Burnham Architecture Archives and the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum in Springfield.
- The development team will sponsor a public education seminar regarding mid-century modern Architecture in Chicago
