The COVID-19 pandemic restrictions on construction activity hasn’t stoped progress in preparing for the start of one of Chicago’s most ambitious developments — the Salesforce Tower Chicago at 333 Wolf Point Plaza Dr.
Chicago issued on April 7 a $50 million building permit for the “caisson, foundation and structure up to grade level for a new 58-story office building, scope to include foundation and ERS system, below-grade parking levels, and level 1 floor slab.”
“With an average floor plate size of 24,500 rentable square feet, the building will offer efficient planning for a variety of office users. Amenities will include a club-quality fitness center with locker rooms and showers, a conference center with multiple configurations and capacity sizes, a tenant lounge and approximately 25,000 square feet of commercial retail space, including a variety of food and beverage concepts.”
The project’s general contractor (and masonry contractor) is Walsh Construction Company and the plumber/plumber for the below-grade work is Norman Mechanical.
A separate permit will be issued for the above-grade structure.
