Work on the 14-month project started in December, 2016, with site excavations and clearings. On May 16 this year, Chicago issued an updated $18.5 million permit for “shell and core of a 4-story office building with mechanical penthouse and basement as per plans.” There is also a reference for a 1,574 sq. ft. green roof.
Berglund says the “50,000 sq. ft. building will primarily serve as Moody’s global media center, becoming home to Moody Radio and Moody Publishers. Featuring state-of-the-art work spaces and radio broadcast production studios, the Chapman Center will also serve as a hands-on space for Moody Bible Institute’s students to learn from seasoned professionals.”
Subcontractors include: Electrical – Rex Elect. & Technologies LLC.; plumber/plumbing, J.C. Erickson; refrigeration and ventilation, Roberts Environmental Control.
