17-story office tower to bring public space to Fulton Market

Tribco is thrilled to be part of the 167 Green Street project, a new office and urban space that will lend itself to the ongoing cultural transformation of Chicago’s former meat-packing district, Fulton Market District. The official groundbreaking took place April 19, and we were in great company with Mayor Rahm Emanuel, Alderman Walter Burnett Jr. and project partners Focus, Shapack Partners, Gensler and others.

A joint venture by Focus Development and Shapack Partners, in collaboration with Walton Street Capital, the 17-story office tower will be located at the epicenter of Fulton Market, on Lake Street between Green and Halsted streets. With the largest floor plates available in the rapidly developing neighborhood, the tower will offer 360-degree views with floor-to-ceiling glass on all sides, 13-foot-plus ceiling heights and private tenant terraces on two of its levels. It will be home to several large companies including WeWork, who will occupy 140,000 of the building’s 750,000 square feet.

Tribco’s scope of work includes a complex cast-in-place concrete core, concrete foundations, slab on metal deck and a unique architectural feature wall on the first level. Our partners include Ozinga Concrete, CMC Rebar, II In One Contractors, Doka Formwork and others.

Planned amenities include onsite parking, a tenant lounge, a fitness center with yoga studio and an outdoor terrace/rooftop garden. Flexible event space on the top floor will serve as a full-size basketball court and also accommodate town hall-style conferences for up to 400. Additionally, up to 30,000 square feet of retail space will be located at ground level.

Architect Gensler designed the tower with walkability in mind. The building will rise above a new public walkway (known as the “mews”) that will connect Halsted and Lake streets and give pedestrians access to the building’s restaurants, retail and green spaces. The building, itself, has direct access to the neighborhood’s amenities, retail and transportation.

The property is expected to be completed during summer 2020 and seek LEED Gold certification. For more information, visit www.167greenst.com.
