Clark Construction Group has delivered two state-of-the-art assets in downtown Chicago for clients Tishman Speyer Properties and Moceri + Roszak – 320 N. Sangamon and Parkline Chicago, respectively.
In Chicago's Fulton Market neighborhood, the Clark team delivered 320 North Sangamon, a 270,000-square-foot core-and-shell commercial office building. The 13 stories include 8,000 square feet of retail space, a 47-stall parking lot, and 8,500 square feet of amenity space.
320 N. Sangamon was project was full of firsts: 320 North Sangamon was Clark’s first project in the Fulton Market area, it was Tishman Speyer's first ground-up construction in Chicago in over two decades; and the first office building in Chicago to achieve LEED Gold under the latest version, LEED v4.
The project also represented a first for long-term Clark DBE-partner New Horizon Steel, who secured its first prime subcontract for structural steel without a joint venture partner. Corey Smith, the president of New Horizon Steel who has teamed up on previous Clark projects as a subprime trade contractor, is a graduate of Clark’s Strategic Partnership Program in Chicago.
Two miles east in the Loop, Clark delivered Parkline Chicago, a 214-unit residential building. The Clark team finished the 26-story, 295,000-square-foot tower–complete with two floors of parking and three floors of amenity space–90 days ahead of schedule for repeat client, Moceri + Roszak. Since 2015, the Clark team has delivered three residential and one office tower for Moceri + Roszak.
The Parkline Chicago team worked within the confines of a tight urban footprint and nearby elevated Chicago Transit Authority tracks to demolish, excavate, and construct this best-in-class residential asset. In pursuit of two Green Globe certifications from the Green Building Initiative, the team backfilled and stabilized the excavated portion with rubble from the demolished building, diverting waste from landfills.
“Both of these projects are a testament to Clark’s versatility in Chicagoland and the decades-long relationships that we have been able to foster here with clients, with DBE partners, and with the community,” said Stephanie Calhoun, vice president of Clark Construction.
