This blog post features images from our exterior RISE at Riverfront Crossings Iowa City photography architectural shoot.  The two-tower, mixed-use complex development rises 15-stories high.  The new, high-rise towers make for an attractive, modern update to downtown Iowa City’s expanding skyline.  

The metal and glass, duo-tower architecture, modern skyscraper development is home to two new businesses in Iowa City Hyatt Place Hotel Iowa City Downtown and off-campus student housing residential apartments RISE at Riverfront Crossings.  Focusing on the building’s exterior photography, the building shoot of the two-towers highlights the property’s mixed-use, and façade construction design.  The new construction Iowa City project is both an urban residential, student housing development, mixed with hotel hospitality downtown in Iowa City.  The Rise at Riverfront Crossings development achieved LEED Gold Certification for sustainability. 

Chicago-based photographers, we travel to Iowa, around the Midwest, and we are often booking travel architecture shoots Nationwide!  Upon final construction completion, our client who is the manufacturer and installation construction company of the glass and metal building enclosures, requested portfolio marketing architectural images looking for us to highlight in photography the modern architecture’s metal & glass.  The high-rise property and Iowa architectural photography shoot included capturing both day and night exterior building photographs of RISE and the Hyatt Place Hotel in Iowa City.  The photos focused on construction marketing portfolio photos to showcase the final construction of the large mixed-use property site capturing both the hospitality and luxury apartment student housing complex towers.  The location offered an excellent setting for adding drone aerial building photos, in additional to the daytime, and eye-catching sunrise or night dusk exterior photography of the property. We are photographers who have photographed several luxury apartment and condo development photography & similar architecture designed development student housing projects.  

The modern luxury, 2-story high-rise and mid-rise Iowa development property with underground parking garage is located in downtown Iowa City within the downtown’s university area. The mixed-use development complex is steps away from the University of Iowa campus.  RISE is the University of Iowa’s new student apartments and premium upscale housing, off-campus living apartment community.  Offering brand new, stunning interior design and rooms inside, these apartments feature the latest in upscale student housing trends and amenities.  Our photography client continues to be building Nationwide, constructing numerous luxury, and upscale student housing developments with unique, incredible modern architecture & building design.  The mixed-use development and RISE at Riverfront Crossings incorporates all the extras expected in luxury dorm, off-campus living.  Unique to other student housing projects we’ve photographed, for this Iowa City development’s design it offers the convenience of an on-site Hyatt  Place hotel for student’s parents and visitors to rent a hotel room in the adjoining tower near by.

Capturing exterior building photography of the two, 15-story and high-rise towers that create the new Iowa City downtown skyline,  our shoot includes photos of the property’s outdoor facade, multiple entrances into the mixed-use development, the residential rental courtyard with pool deck for student’s pool-side lounging featuring an outdoor Jumbo-Tron to watch the Iowa Hawkeyes play where fire pits and grilling stations are nearby. With a long list of amenities on the Rise at Riverfront Crossings, student’s apartments tower, which go above and beyond standard student living, it was easily recognizable these apartments provide a luxury living space that gives University of Iowa students a comfortable, chic retreat from the hustle and bustle of academic life. 

The Rise and the Hyatt Place Hotel Iowa City twin towers offers both a luxury housing apartment building and luxurious hotel.  Both are a great location near downtown Iowa City’s shopping & restaurants, and an easy walk to the U of I campus.  The two-tower luxury student residence and hotel are located close to the Iowa River in downtown Iowa City.  For hotel guests or student residents needing a break from studying, the nearby Iowa River waterfront park has walking & biking trails and opportunities for students who enjoy river boating & recreation too.  Additional exterior building perks include the convenient, on-site parking garage located under the building.

As an architectural photographer with an appreciation for architecture, history and impeccably designed décor & interiors, we appreciate the completed restoration & history behind Michigan Avenue’s the Blackstone Chicago Autograph Collection Restored Hotel.  From the Blackstone Chicago Autograph Collection hotel exterior’s historic renovated building elevation photos, to photography inside the Blackstone hotel, every inch of the renovated modern and eclectic historic hotel, for a traveling Chicago hotel photographer like us, is a dream to photograph. Step inside the Blackstone Chicago Autograph Collection hotel, or inside any of the handpicked worldwide  Marriott International Autograph Collection’s hotels, and be amazed by the design, local lifestyle and extraordinary experience. As preferred hotel photographers in Chicago, for The Blackstone Chicago and Autograph Collection Hotel Corporation, we have toured and captured exterior and room photography inside nearly every space in the interior of the hotel, from the suites, rooms, and glamourous event spaces inside the boutique, regal Chicago Blackstone hotel.

It is easy to fall in love with each of the hundreds of Autograph Collection hotels. Just like inside Chicago’s restored Blackstone Chicago hotel, each Autograph hotel property has a way of staying connected to their geographical surroundings, local cultural & historical roots. This gives guests a bit more of an authentic stay and experience. Inside the Blackstone Hotel Chicago, appreciate the hotel’s refined details of the human touch, evidence of interior hotel designers & visionaries obsessing over every detail, and heartfelt design & emotion providing for an overall in tune sense of place and comfortable stay in Chicago’s South Loop.

Oh, and we stopped in for a Catalan-inspired cocktail and a bite to eat, eating tapas at the Chicago local’s favorite restaurant Mercat a la Planxa on Michigan Avenue, on the street level of the hotel.  Highly recommended a visit and taste.

An iconic looking building standing within Chicago’s skyline, the Blackstone Chicago Autograph Collection Hotel, Michigan Avenue high-rise building with brick and limestone facade elevation, stands tall presenting its story of history, glamour, and hospitality for over a century. The Chicago Blackstone Hotel opening day was April 6, 1910.  Since the hotel’s opening day, the Blackstone has attracted celebrities, socialites, politicians, travelers to Chicago, business travelers, couples, newlyweds getting married, and more over the past century. The hotel named “The Hotel of Presidents” fits as the historic Chicago hotel proudly has hosted several foreign dignitaries and heads of state, from Teddy Roosevelt to Jimmy Carter. Also hosting various icons from as the Astors, Rockefellers, and Vanderbilts, to Lena Horne, Marilyn Monroe, Nat King Cole, Rudolph Valentino, and even visits by the legendary mob bosses “Lucky” Luciano and Al Capone. In 1998, Chicago declared the Blackstone as a historic landmark. However at that time, it was in need of redevelopment and standing in construction despair. Renovation of the historic hotel began in 2006, with the rehab construction completed and a reopening celebration in 2008 celebrating the restored building. The Blackstone most recently had a $139-million hotel architectural restoration in 2008 with the renovation was led by Chicago-based Gettys Group. Restoration of the Blackstone included a refresh to the original work of Chicago architectural firm Marshall and Fox to highlight its early twentieth-century grandeur while incorporating technology and modern amenities.
