One Bennett Park Tops Out

Today Related Midwest celebrated the topping out of One Bennett Park, the 70-story Robert A.M. Stern Architects-designed apartment house in Chicago's Streeterville neighborhood. Rising 836 feet, One Bennett Park is the tallest tower to top out in downtown Chicago since 2009 and, upon completion, will be the tallest all-residential skyscraper in the city.

“The topping out of One Bennett Park represents a construction milestone not only for this project, but for all of Chicago and Streeterville in particular,” said Curt Bailey, president of Related Midwest. “Expertly designed by Robert A.M. Stern Architects and inspired by our city’s timeless Art Deco-style buildings, One Bennett Park will elevate luxury living in every possible sense."

One Bennett Park is a slender precast-concrete-clad tower with a limestone base and an asymmetrical crown that steps up toward the city as it favors views to Lake Michigan, combining 279 rental and 69 condominium apartments. Metal detailing, punched windows, and glassy stacked bays enliven the composition, as do vertical setbacks. A lantern at the top, housing mechanical equipment, makes for a memorable skyline silhouette. Designed in tandem with this tower is Bennett Park, a formerly underutilized 1.7-acre green space reimagined by landscape architecture firm Michael Van Valkenburgh Associates.

RAMSA Partners Robert A.M. Stern and Daniel Lobitz led the design effort. GREC serves as associate architect. For more information about the project, please click here.
