110 North Wacker Chicago

This next post features architectural photography of the 110 North Wacker Chicago skyscraper building, Chicago’s newest premier Chicago office tower. The mixed-use office and retail building architecture is set between prestigious Wacker Drive and the Chicago River within Chicago’s iconic skyline.  As a Chicago architectural photographer team, MILLER+MILLER is moving often around downtown Chicago photographing properties and developments. As commercial photographers photographing portfolio and marketing property images, this give us a sneak peek into what’s new, building growth, and developments blooming up within the city. From Chicago’s skyscrapers, urban developments, rooftops, riverfront properties, to hot new restaurants, and newly constructed buildings, with each new property is a change to the skyline of Chicago.  With our camera and eyes looking up from the ground for a commercial architecture photography project, or our camera up in the sky for drone aerial photography and architectural video drone vantage view points, we enjoy viewing numerous changes and often have a first-hand look into the urban Chicago modern skyscraper architecture developments and witnessing the evolution of Chicago’s vast skyline views.  

The Class A+ 110 North Wacker Chicago building is a 1.5 million-square-foot premier downtown Chicago office tower and mixed-use property.  The 55-story building with Chicago riverfront is boasting spectacular city views and Chicago Riverwalk access.  The skyscraper location is within Chicago’s Central Business District in the West Loop submarket.  Howard Hughes Corporation is the developer for the Chicago skyscraper development.  Chicago is proud to welcome Howard Hughes, a developer and operator of master planned communities and mixed-use properties nationwide spanning 14 states from New York to Hawaii, and now in Chicago.  One of our niche client’s is photographing inside corporate commercial real estate and office building photography. Below are a few highlights for this new development under construction in downtown Chicago.

The building is designed by Chicago-based, award-winning architect Goettsch Partners, renowned for their high-rise design and technical expertise. The tower is wrapped in a high-performance aluminum-and-glass curtain wall, showcasing sweeping views up and down the Chicago river, as well as of the Chicago skyline and Lake Michigan.  The modern architectural style utilizes a steel structure, concrete core construction, high performance floor to ceiling glass, 9’-6” clear ceiling height, and high-end stone elements at the pedestrian level and lobbies. The building provides state-of-the art office space, amenities, and notable public outdoor environments.  A 45-foot-high lobby is enclosed by a cable-supported glass wall, and sculpted, folded-limestone cladding covers the elevator cores. The transparency of the low-iron glass wall virtually eliminates the distinction between interior and exterior space, with the lobby and streetscape becoming one. 

Described as situated on the last true “trophy” office site development parcel with nearby access to major every metro transportation system. Goettsch Partners says “the site would have been developed many years ago if not for its trapezoidal shape. Given that the east and west property lines are not parallel, fitting a typical Class A office floor plate, including the center core and desired lease spans, is a challenge.  In addition, for any site along the river, the city requires a 30-foot-wide publicly accessible riverwalk, further complicating the site.  The design addresses the challenges with an unusual stepped center core, which allows for a 45-foot lease span on each side. To avoid an angled perimeter, the west wall has a series of 30-foot-wide, five-foot setbacks, accommodating an orthogonal, five-foot planning module throughout the building.”  The series of architectural setbacks along the west facade creates 14 corner-office opportunities per floor. The riverwalk setbacks also helped to create the building’s distinctive form that accentuates the building’s verticality and avoids the pure box-like appearance of typical office towers.  Three large, “tree-like” column structural elements transfer out the tower columns along the river and further open 45-foot-wide Chicago riverwalk at the building site.

The location is between Wacker with the Chicago River and bounded by Washington and Randolph Streets, the 110 North Wacker building includes robust amenities such as a well-appointed conference center, board rooms, quick casual dining, a large professionally-operated fitness center as well as approximately 100 valet and reserved parking stalls. The project delivers a lushly landscaped public riverwalk and park at the base of the building as well as 360 feet of Riverwalk frontage with pedestrian paths. The Goettsch Partners’s building design provides a 45-foot-wide riverwalk that is covered, but effectively open to the sky, 55 feet above.   

The glass curtain wall enclosure was completed at the time of this photo.  However, the new Chicago high-rise skyscraper development is currently under construction and is set to open in Q4 of 2020.  The mixed-use office tower will feature an abundance of retail and dining options, state-of-the-art building systems, and an arts program.  In addition, approximately half of the site is being allocated for public open space.

As COVID-19 positive case numbers rise throughout the United States and in Illinois, many national and state-owned resources are tapped for response by Doctor Anthony Fauci and Dr. Deborah Brix, US President Trump, and Illinois Governor Pritzker. In March 2020, the Chicago Veterans Home new construction development was fast-tracked for completion as an available COVID facility.  The plans for finalizing construction on the medical campus was accelerated into a 2-week plan, to provide the 200-bed veterans facility available to the State of Illinois as soon as possible.

In late March, Gov. J.B. Pritzker appointed Chicago’s McCormick Place Convention Center Halls and the Chicago Veterans Home as facilities to be converted to a hospital to handle patients due to the new Corona COVID-19 cases in Illinois.  At the time of the acceleration of construction, the Illinois Governor’s office’s “thinking was that in two weeks, the state is going to need any and all space they can find” according to ENR Midwest article.

Illinois state-owned and lead-operated by the Illinois Capital Development Board, the $71-million Chicago Veterans Home building project has had delays since construction began in 2012 because of a faulty foundation design by the original structural engineer and because of shutdowns over disagreements between former Governor Bruce Rauner and Illinois House Speaker Michael Madigan. During the past 10 years, according to an article published by the Columbia Chronicle, “the construction project has seen a number of complications, including a budget impasse under former Gov. Bruce Rauner, a design flaw due to earthquake resistance zoning requirements and funding problems.” The Capital Development Board organization oversees construction of new state facilities, such as prisons, college buildings and mental hospitals. It also is responsible for renovation and rehabilitation projects at currently 8,771 state-owned buildings.

From the ENR.com article, the project’s contractor IHC Construction accelerated the schedule for the Chicago Illinois Veterans Home Property by coordinating additional trades on-site to meet the early delivery of the property. “IHC put on a second shift and is now working to get the 200-bed home done as quickly as possible. The firm brought in a cleaning crew that spends about three hours cleaning and disinfecting the space [using] … CDC-approved protocols between shifts and at the end of the day. Other measures include spreading out the work by sending in only two trades workers per space used in the H-shaped, five-story building.”

The Illinois Veterans Home Chicago location is located 13 miles from downtown Chicago located on a portion of the Chicago-Read Mental Health Center site.  The urban property’s site location is on Chicago’s northwest side. Chicago’s Illinois Veterans’ Home is the very first Veteran’s facility building within the City of Chicago. The home is a non-age-restricted, licensed skilled care programming and features a strategic adjacency to the Illinois Read Mental Health Center.

The Chicago Illinois Veterans Home is the first newly constructed veterans’ home in Illinois in over 20 years. The Illinois Veterans’ Home is the first veteran’s facility in the state to incorporate the federal Community Living Center (CLC) guidelines with an architectural and interior design created to resemble “home” as much as possible meanwhile providing skilled nursing and medical care services. The facility will provide skilled care for Illinois veterans, including accommodations for Alzheimers care. “This project embodies a paradigm shift in how the State of Illinois approaches veteran care,” says HED Principal and Studio Leader Susan King,  “Using the CLC guidelines, which was mandated by the Federal Veterans Administration for all newly constructed projects in 2011, we’ve created a facility that incorporates small house design at a large scale.” The design of the building is in conformance with the Community Living Concepts (CLC). Greenhouse concepts for senior living and requirements of IDPH was recommended for firms submitting for this project.  

Chicago interior photographer, with a shot list including photography inside the property, photographing images of the nursing hospital and residential veterans living facility.  Photography of the interior construction included the upper floor’s residential areas design with a combined kitchen dining area, library, nurses’ station, corridors, spa tub bathing suite, and a variety of resident rooms sizes. On the first-floor, photography of the hospital commercial dining staff’s dietary stainless steel kitchen, refrigerator cooler, delivery, and food service diet preparation areas.  According to King at HED “The dining program utilizes a hybrid approach with central and residential format kitchens in each household to serve the population appropriately. Medical features and spaces such as nursing stations were approached through a hospitality lens, with finishes that recall a household environment.”

Construction of the 200-bed Veterans home facility is a project managed by the Capital Development Board of Illinois.  M+M are Chicago architectural photographers who quote photos of a variety of design and construction company’s portfolio projects. Over the years we’ve been commissioned for photography projects by many of the professional architects, engineers, project managers, interior designers, construction experts, and construction trades project participants many which the Capital Development Board manage for design and construction of Illinois state-funded facilities. The Capital Development Board, CDB manages projects that touch the lives of almost every state of Illinois citizen with work, construction and development on various state property projects colleges and universities, public safety centers, museums and historic sites, state parks, healthcare centers, and health & office buildings. Custom quoting each exterior and interior photography project producing a set of finalized portfolio images for sales, documentation and marketing / new business promotional purposes of construction buildings and facilities.  

We are a photographer who discusses a building’s exterior to ensure our shots of photography of the Chicago Illinois Veterans Home property included the views the client had envisioned.  Architectural and interesting aspects of the symmetrical designed H shaped, mid-rise property included aerial drone images, ground day and night photography, balcony shots utilizing the residential kitchen living room common area’s private wing terraces, and photos of the resident’s northern gardens to include the second-floor green landscaped garden terrace rooftop and additional garden landscaping sitting area below on the veterans home’s first-floor.  The Chicago Skyline is viewable in the distance from the East facing resident rooms and captured within the aerial drone photography.
