Related Midwest says that crews are pouring the 50th floor of One Bennett Park, the developer’s residential tower at 451 E. Grand Ave. in Streeterville, as the tower climbs toward its full height of 70 stories. The 49th-floor deck and 50th-floor core walls were poured the week of Sept. 13, bringing the structure to more than 540 ft.
The project, described by the developers as the city’s tallest all-residential tower, has been designed by Robert A.M. Stern Architects. Chicago-based Lendlease is serving as the project’s general contractor, while Chicago-based GREC is the architect of record.
Also under construction is Bennett Park, an adjacent 1.7-acre green space designed by Michael Van Valkenburg Associates, whose other Chicago projects include Maggie Daley Park, The 606 and the Barack Obama Presidential Center.
The project broke ground in February 2016, with completion scheduled for early 2019.
