BMO Tower Chicago: The bold start of an exciting new chapter

On June 24, BMO celebrated the grand opening of BMO Tower Chicago, our new U.S. Headquarters. The state-of-the-art, 50-story building is located in Chicago’s West Loop Gate neighborhood and at 700 feet is the tallest office tower west of Canal Street.

“BMO Tower represents a major investment by BMO in Chicago,” said David Casper, U.S. CEO, BMO Financial Group. “We’re the largest bank in the world that has its U.S. headquarters in Chicago, a market in which we have a long, proud history of over 160 years.”   

“Each year, more corporations are realizing the incredible potential of our city to launch and grow a successful business,” said Chicago Mayor Lori E. Lightfoot. “BMO Tower will stand as a testament to our city’s thriving corporate amenities and bustling downtown area. I’m deeply grateful for BMO’s latest investment in Chicago and for their continued support of our communities.” 

The transformational new office space was designed to reflect the future of BMO, one that provides an exciting, vibrant environment for customers to conduct their banking, and for employees to work.  

Developed by Riverside Investment & Development, BMO Tower aligns with BMO’s Zero Barriers to Inclusion 2025 strategy by supporting and enabling all employees to do their best work. The building is fully ADA compliant and features touchless wave sensors at entryways, braille and tactile lettering signage, and accessible water filling stations. The main floor of the tower features a brand new, technology-enabled branch, providing customers with a modern and open environment. 

The tower includes a state-of-the-art fitness center and a 1.5-acre green space. It was sustainably designed to achieve WELL Building Platinum and LEED Gold standards to safeguard tenant health and wellbeing and incorporates innovative technology to maximize occupant health, mitigate risk related to harmful environmental factors and enhance operational efficiency.  

BMO Tower signals our commitment to the city, the economic development of the area and our own future growth in Chicago and throughout the U.S.
