Many office bathrooms feel like, well, office bathrooms. This bathroom in the Loop neighborhood of Chicago offers some uniqueness

The AMA Plaza, formerly the IBM Plaza, sits by the Chicago River and features offices for many major corporations, from law firms to WeWork.

The top ten stories are currently occupied by the plaza’s namesake, the AMA, and have the same interesting pattern.

With entrances on either side, and a mirrored architecture that goes from two urinals to four stalls to another two urinals and four sinks across from the stalls, there’s a refreshing symmetry to the layout that you don’t often experience.

Of course, these corporate bathrooms are maintained to a standard of meticulous cleanliness

The urinals include a short and higher option. Children rarely will use this bathroom, but if they do, they’re taken care of. The stalls are spacious, clean and well maintained. The theme of these bathrooms is inclusivity. It’s safe, welcoming, is useable for all ages and even includes sanitary products for the non-binary/trans community.

The counters are fashionably marbled and it’s rare you find yourself taking care of business with someone else doing the same.

Who doesn’t love a spacious bathroom all to yourself?

Ultimately, these are well-maintained clean and often-empty bathrooms that anyone can enjoy. If we at Poopable would offer one suggestion, it would be to make the paper towels less hidden. Over the sinks, there are hidden slots that dispense paper towels but are only subtly identified.

Is the AMA Plaza Poopable?

Absolutely. Sure, an office building in the center of a major city is held to a different standard than, say, a bar with a toilet without a stall, but even for a corporate bathroom location, these are clean, quiet and friendly.
