The two 29-story Esplanade Apartment towers, are located between Walton Place and Delaware Place on Lake Shore Drive. Mies was careful to integrate them with the landscape by positioning them against a spacious grassy lawn.

The 900/910 buildings are much like their predecessors at 860/880 N Lake Shore Drive, as they are also positioned perpendicular to one another. Their relationship to Lake Shore Drive differs however in that the north building is set much farther from it, providing a more open landscape. A cor-ten steel sculpture by Richard Hunt titled ”Fox Box Hybrid” sits on this lawn.
