PROJECT+SITE HISTORY OVERBUILD+LOBBY LOBBY WALL


Evolution of Plaza / Park Design

October 2011 •  3-story parking structure •  Public park 35’ above plaza •  200 parking spaces •  ½ acre of hardscape

January 2013 • 2-1/2 story parking structure • Parking reduced by 50 spaces • Plaza retail reduced 20% • Public ‘piazza’ • Landscape increased by 20%

• 

The prior designs are but a representative sample of more than 10 iterations on design

• 

20+ meetings with Alderman and DHED over 18+ months

• 

Current plan reflects continual refinement and improvement to quality of public

July 2013 •  1-story parking structure, hidden underneath park •  Parking reduced to 75 spaces •  Landscaping constitutes more than 75% of total site area •  Continuous landscaping along Randolph St
