|ALLOY 2 MIXED USE TOWER, CHICAGO, IL
INTELLIGENT AND DYNAMIC REDEVELOPMENT IN TOWN
A 50 story scraper rises exuberantly from a multi purpose base development in this urban core intervention. At grade parking for vehicular sensitive boutiques and retail shops line the perimeter of the development along with gardens, water features and outdoor dinning. A multi story terraced “ring”, walled with hanging gardens houses a 700 car deck and surrounds a lush Italian renaissance style park and lake. Fronting the park with walls of glass is a retail mall. Thus while developed directly in the urban core, at its heart, in the quiet paradise of the interior park this project will deliver the feeling of a beautifully landscaped rural retreat. The shimmering glass and aluminum skinned tower houses offices and condominiums along with health clubs, night club, professional services and every other amenity required to attract people to downtown living including an avant garde theatre. The development is large enough to create it’s own market weight for services thus greatly enhancing the survivability of businesses in the project. Secured and separate parking and elevator lobbies insure the tower residents of safety and privacy.
