Hines Interests

300 N. LaSalle

The Solution

Designed by the internationally recognized firm Pickard Chilton, the 57-story, 1.3 million-square-foot building continues the extraordinary tradition of Chicago architecture. Rising 775 feet from the Chicago River, 300 North LaSalle, among the city's tallest buildings, offers 200 feet of frontage along the river, including an outdoor plaza with seating and a large waterfront café. Other building amenities include a three-level, 225-car garage, a white-tablecloth restaurant, a fitness center, a conference center and a bank.

As a certified Gold LEED-CS development, the tower is extremely energy efficient. Its façade is clad in richly articulated glass and stainless steel, maximizing the introduction of daylight and minimizing solar gain. Drawing water from the Chicago River for use in its cooling system will save five millions of gallons of drinking water annually. It also uses collected rain water in its HVAC system. As a sustainable site, strategies included reduced heat island effect, and a 50% green roof. Local, regional and recycled materials were used with 9,400 tons of waste diverted from landfills. Indoor Environmental Quality utilizes CO2 monitoring, low-emitting materials, 90%+ daylight views and thermal comfort monitoring system.

300 N. LaSalle St., developed by Hines Interests L.P., won Office Development of the Year in NAIOP Chicago's 23rd Annual Awards for Excellence. The building also won Green Development of the Year. Major Tenants
