Novak Construction serves as General Contractor and performed Design-Build MEPFP services for this new 11-story cast-in-place mixed-use residential tower in downtown Chicago. The design is comprised by street-level retail (approximately 27.5k SF), two levels of parking (120 spaces), and two floors of offices followed by five residential levels (75 units) with multiple terraces. The green rooftop decks will be multi-tiered. The tower’s amenities feature a fitness center and multi-use outdoor terraces, as well as a top floor Club Level room.

From a logistical standpoint, the construction was challenging due to its proximity to two large buildings on either side, as well as the Chicago Transit (Green) Line on the north elevation. Novak is adept at dense urban landscapes with limited staging areas. The delivery of materials, respect for the adjacent properties and on-time schedule deliverables are the hallmark of these Novak projects.
