After collaborating with the planning team to create the master plan for this 7.5-acre mixed-use development, Hitchcock Design Group continued to work with the design team to implement phase one of the plan. The project offers users a prime location close to transit and downtown, revitalizes the existing dated residential property and creates a new and enduring community that offers a sustainable urban environment. Phase one includes developing the first building, a 32-story residential tower located on a busy corner in downtown Chicago. Improvements to the existing streetscape and entry plaza, as well as the addition of a 30,000 sf amenity deck, are also part of the phase one plan. Several other terraces are planned for this phase as well. The 8th floor amenity deck has been designed to be one of the largest in the city of Chicago and will include green roofs, a pool, hot tub, multi-use court, fire pits, outdoor kitchens and other high-end finishes.
Upon completion of Phase 1, ONNI GROUP engaged the project team to move forward with Phases II and III. These phases include a 40-story tower, a 41-story tower, streetscapes, entry plazas and a central park. The 2-acre central park is located between all three buildings and includes gardens, a ribbon of shade trees, lawn panels, seat walls, a dog run, special paving, ornamental lighting, and public art. The mixed-use towers are predominantly residential but also include commercial on the first floors and offices on higher levels. Each building has multiple outdoor terraces and green roofs but they share a 50,000 SF amenity deck which includes two pools, hot tubs, multi-use play areas, fire pits, outdoor kitchens, a playground, and many other amenities with high end modern finishes.
