The International Hotel and Trump Tower are located on the banks of the Chicago River — at the place where it flows into Lake Michigan. The building has a hotel, retail premises, and a spa center.

The Chicago authorities, in turn, argued that empty spaces nevertheless increase the value of the entire building.
