Riverworks is an eight-story warehouse with an attached three-story annex that was converted for use as the Chicago Headquarters for the Sara Lee Corporation. The 300,000 SF project features office and support space, including a health club, restaurant and corporate cafeteria.

A new construction two-story research and development facility containing meat and bakery kitchens and storage facilities for Sara Lee was added. The building is set within a landscaped exterior plaza and dining area overlooking the river with parking for 400 cars. Additionally, a new, six-story office building, encompassing approximately 85,000 SF, serves as the gateway to the development.
