Please join YEC for a tour of One Grant Park, the 82-story tower currently under construction in Chicago’s South Loop neighborhood at 1200 S. Indiana. This project is a 270.7 m (888 ft) tall, 111,484 m² (1.2 million ft²) residential tower with 12 levels of parking at lower levels and retail space at street level. The structural system is comprised of concrete core with concrete/composite outriggers at 3 levels along the height of the tower. Serviceability performance under wind load is enhanced by the use of Tuned Sloshing Tanks placed at topmost outriggers.

The tour, led by the design architect and engineer of record, will begin
at 3 pm and is expected to last an hour and a half.  Following the site visit, a group will be heading over to The Scout Waterhouse + Kitchen for appetizers (provided by SEAOI) and drinks.

All participants must provide their own PPE including: close toed shoes (no heels), long pants, long-sleeved shirts, hardhats, safety glasses, and reflective vests.
