Man, was I mistaken. I was probably thinking of the east annex on Tribune Tower.
The north tower of Intercontinental is a rather undistinguished 1960s modern building with a sad-looking curtain wall. Only the facade facing Michigan is limestone (with a great patina) but it's a sheer wall.
I'm guessing any "big splash" things will happen to this blank wall.
