The Glenstar Office Parking Garage in Chicago, Illinois consists of a 3-story parking garage outside the footprint of the office tower, and a 3-story parking garage underneath a 5-story office building. This building is a full precast system utilizing 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 compliment the extensive glass areas. All 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 is being erected by Waubonsee Development.
