CityGate Centre & Hotel Arista

The Solution

Located in prestigious Naperville, Illinois, CityGate Centre encompasses 31 acres at the highly visible intersection of I-88 and Route 59 in the rapidly growing East-West Corridor submarket of Chicago. At over 1.2 million square feet of space the development supports a variety of environments, including office, restaurants and retail, a boutique hotel and a performing arts center.

Phase I of CityGate Centre currently features:

  • Approximately 211,000 square feet of Class A Silver LEED Certified office space
  • 54,000 square feet of high-end retail, restaurants and professional services space
  • 144-room eco-chic Hotel Arista, Illinois' only LEED Certified Four Diamond boutique hotel
  • Heavily landscaped and walkable town center environment
CityGate Centre has cutting edge architecture, sustainable design and green building strategies, and includes high ceilings, indirect lighting with light harvesting, floor to ceiling glass, under floor air distribution and energy efficient HVAC systems.

Modern Technology with a Focus on Our Environment

Hotel Arista in Naperville, is the first LEED certified hotel in Illinois as recognized by the U.S Green Building Council (USGBC).
  • 75% of our building receives natural lighting. All of the windows are double panes, energy efficient, and sound-proof. These windows also open, providing our guests with fresh air — an option generally not available in city hotels.
  • Energy Star approved, extremely efficient windows with Low E, a highly reflective coating that protects interiors from infrared light. This keeps heat inside during the winter and outside during the summer, reducing the need for energy used for supplemental heating or cooling.
  • Energy saving climate-controlled heating and ventilating systems are activated when the guest checks in and deactivated at checkout or when the guest leaves the room for a period of time. Thoughtfully designed, they can be maintained via a central network.
  • Occupancy/light sensors in all administrative areas.
  • Indoor LED lighting is energy efficient and motion sensed.
  • State of the art, energy efficient heating and cooling systems, designed to customize temperature by individual zones in each guest room or suite, limiting use to specific needs.
  • The heating and cooling system controlled by the WebCTRL® System, is integrated with the hotel management system which allows rooms to be powered down when not in use and calibrated for specific occupancy expectations.
