29 N WACKER, CHICAGO
29 North Wacker Drive Chicago is a 250,000 gsf 20-story mixed-use office, retail, and adaptive re-use development. Originally built in the late 1950’s, the building was re-purposed and redesigned for Class A office space. The original marble stone exterior wall was removed and replaced with granite while the original horizontal glazing was retained. A suspended external aluminum screen was added along Wacker Drive and Washington Streets and a second floor continuous glass bay window was added along Wacker Drive gaining new office lease space from a previous storage/mechanical floor. The ground floor retail, main entrance lobby, and typical floor ADA upgrades complete the building transformation.
