Located in the premiere lakefront Streeterville neighborhood, One Bennett Park is a 69-story, art deco inspired tower that exemplifies luxury living with views of Lake Michigan, the city skyline and the park. The 700,000-square-foot building building includes 279 apartments, 69 condominiums and a four-story, underground parking structure. Amenities include a recreational deck overlooking the park, a lounge area, fitness facilities and both an indoor and outdoor pool.
We provided structural design services to Robert A.M. Stern Architects for the tower, which opened in 2019.
- The precastconcrete clad residential tower with a limestone base creates a distinguished presence among its glass neighbors.
- Outrigger walls from level 4 through level 40 along with belt walls at Level 40 were utilized to stiffen the building and distribute large uplift forces allowing belled caissons to be used throughout. A simple structural system allowed for a typical 3 day pour cycle.
- The 900-space parking structure provided a challenge in regards to fitting in foundations as the new building stands one inch from the existing garage, a large transfer grade beam transfers full height building columns in two directions.
- A three level Tuned Sloshing Damper is utilized at the top of the building to control slender building accelerations and is completely integrated into the architectural expression.
