Come discover the newest condominium project in the heart of Downtown Chicago and the Loop. The name Modern Momentum (MoMo for short) implies both contemporary architecture and, with its playful reference to MoMA, great modern art. That’s a tall order to fill, but Smithfield Properties’ planned highrise, with a design by architects Booth Hansen, delivers admirably. Of course, with this highrise, it’s what isn’t delivered that’s most important. The 33-story tower, planned for a site at State and Randolph streets, sports a four-story central void – a giant hole in the building – that will no doubt leave passersby gawking on State Street for years to come. Functional design Far from a gimmick, the unusual design choice evolved from functional and economic considerations, according to architect Charlie Stetson, a principal at Booth Hansen. To ensure good views for residential units, the design team wanted to place most of them higher than a garage that sits directly east of the Modern Momentum site.
