Previously occupied by a parking lot, the new high rise will combine with an existing four-story masonry building from the late 19th century. Combined, the project will yield more than 100,000 square feet of ground-level retail, office, and tenant amenity space.
Office amenities will provide building tenants with a 15th floor penthouse deck featuring a lounge, meeting rooms, a fitness center with locker rooms, and a north-facing outdoor terrace with expansive skyline views. Other in-building features include a 20-foot-high lobby and window-glazing along the large floor-to-ceiling office windows.
Antunovich Associates is responsible for the design, which includes a brick and metal panel facade. The base of the tower will also involve a series of metal trusses that will further exemplify the industrial-inspired aesthetic.
Given its central location, office tenants will find direct access to The Loop, a six-minute walk east, as well as the vibrant West Loop district via a four-minute walk west. Various bus transit options also serve the near vicinity, including Routes 20, 56, 120, 125, and J14 all within a five-minute walking radius. Various rail options are also in the vicinity, with the CTA L Green and Pink Lines available at Clinton station, a four-minute walk northeast. Meanwhile, those looking to board Metra trains will find the Ogilvie Transportation Center within a five-minute walk southeast.
Skender is the general contractor behind the construction, which will be LEED certified once complete. An anticipated opening date is expected for early next year.
