Construction is now underway on the two-story restaurant at 600 North Clark Street, which is expected to open to the public this spring.
Renderings released Tuesday of the 19,000-square-foot restaurant showcase its environmentally-friendly design constructed of steel and wood timber.
New features include: abundant green space with a vegetated roof space and floating garden, a pedestrian-centric space with outdoor seating and a park area, solar panels and energy efficient appliances, and an enhanced McCafe.
The restaurant promises to be more customer-centric as well, with self-order kiosks, table service and mobile order and payment options.
Chicago-based Ross Barney Architects, which designed the Chicago Riverwalk, is behind the project.
