The tower also includes a 12-story parking garage and 14,000 sq ft of retail space at street level. The project was completed three months ahead of schedule due to the use of Doka USA�s unique formwork systems.

The project was one of the first to be LEED certified in Chicago. Additional green elements include a 23,000-sq-ft landscaped green roof, Energy Star appliances, water-saving plumbing fixtures, sustainable and eco-friendly construction and finish materials.
