This one million square foot facility includes 29 storeys of office space and three levels of below grade parking, with a 40 foot high glass parapet feature at the top of the building. The project was built immediately adjacent to active rail lines, requiring the design of a crash wall to withstand the force of a locomotive being derailed. The design incorporated vibration isolation and made provisions for construction of a future subway line.
Additional design challenges included a below grade truck loading dock and access for Union Station delivery trucks to pass through the underground garage.
This award winning project is slated to achieve LEED Gold Certification.
