Chicago, IL -- “150 North Riverside, the slop-bottomed riverfront office tower that officially opened Thursday, is the boldest, most eye-grabbing Chicago Skyscraper since Jeanne Gang’s curvaceous Aqua Tower debuted in 2009,” said Chicago Tribune’s Blair Kamin. F.E. Moran is proud to be the HVAC design/build on record and F.E. Moran Fire Protection provided the fire protection design/build.
The building has 1.2 million square feet of rentable space located on Lake Street and Randolph Street near the el. The project is especially exciting to us because of the sustainability aspect. It is set to be an LEED-CS Gold pre-certified building with high-efficiency mechanical systems to enhance the air quality.
Chicago Crains wrote a piece on the project as well. Crain's said, “Where views across the sites used to be unmemorable when the new buildings are done ‘you’ll have a complete buildout of that basin, the nexus of the three branches of the river.’” Jim Walsh, who works with the developer said, “These are some of the last empty spaces along the river. Filling them is a big event.
While, according to the Chicago Tribune, this space was a “dusty pit into which pedestrians gazed,” it is now an integral part of the Chicago skyline, and F.E. Moran is excited to be a small part of the revolution of the city’s iconic look.
