James McHugh Construction Co., Chicago, has completed Streeter Place, a new luxury apartment tower in Chicago.
The 54-story building at 355 E. Ohio St. is the second phase of a two-building complex developed by Chicago-based Golub & Company LLC on behalf of the owner, OGM Investors II LLC. Designed by Solomon Cordwell Buenz and Associates, it features 480 apartments and a 402-space parking garage.
The building’s 12-story base includes about 10,000 sq ft of retail space, business services center, party room, game room, reading lounge, upscale media room and fitness center with two indoor spas. The base is capped by an outdoor terrace with a swimming pool and extensive landscaping.
Streeter Place incorporates a number of green features, most notably energy-efficient Azuria glass that maximizes interior sunlight and minimizes heat buildup. Other environmentally friendly features include an underground crushed stone reservoir for storm water runoff, with permeable pavers atop it, a green roof, and a densely-landscaped urban park outside the front entrance.
Despite the challenge of working in a highly congested area, McHugh completed 15 of the building’s residential floors early, said John Kelly, McHugh senior project manager. McHugh performed all interior build-out services for the project and also self-performed concrete work for the cast-in-place structure. To support the building, the team drilled 59 caissons into the site.
