Glenstar Office Parking Garage
The Glenstar Office parking garage in Chicago, Illinois consists of a 3-story precast parking garage outside the footprint of the office tower, and a 3-story parking deck underneath a 5-story office building. The total parking count for the development is 628 spaces. This precast building system utilizes TT’s, beams, columns, elevator and stair towers, precast stairs and landings, and architectural precast spandrels for the parking and office tower.
The architectural panels consist of white cement, limestone screenings, and a light abrasive to achieve an intense white color to complement the extensive glass areas. All precast concrete construction products have been cast in Aurora, Illinois. This all-precast structure was selected over other building options due to the cost and speed of erection. We worked on this project with designer, Wright Heerema Architects and general contractor, McShane Construction. The project was erected by Waubonsee Development.
