Today Related Midwest launched the web site for One Bennett Park
, the 70-story Robert A.M. Stern Architects-designed apartment house in Chicago's Streeterville neighborhood. The new site is here
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
