151 North Franklin

The new office building at 151 North Franklin is a 34-story Class A+ office tower located in the heart of Chicago’s “Loop” financial district. The overall project accommodates approximately 740,000 gross square feet (600,000 rentable square feet) above and below ground.

The new office complex integrates a landscaped entrance sequence, an exterior roof garden separating the tower from the adjacent parking structure, typical low-rise and high-rise office floor-plates, and a rooftop sky garden behind cantilevered glazed parapet walls.

The tower will be designed to LEED Silver or Gold standards and will incorporate a range of sustain­able design features, an energy-efficient building envelope, sheathed behind simple and elegant facades with radius corners and graduated frit patterns.
