This adaptive re-use project involves the conversion of a historic salt storage facility into a modern office building and event center. FSE performed an iterative structural analysis that determined how to save the original deteriorated salt sheds, add a new mezzanine and integrate new office space within this 120,000 GSF building complex. Through a combination of field investigations and parametric structural modeling, FSE developed a customized solution to convert this facility and give it new life.
167 N Green is a mixed-use office and retail development in the Fulton Market District in Chicago, IL. The 750,000 SF steel building with concrete core is 18 stories with amenity space and roof top space at the 17th Floor. Encompassing the majority of a city block, a 50-foot-wide, 40-foot-high passage thru the middle of the building provides public space and a connection between busy adjacent streets.
This 800,000 SF mixed-use project will be the largest Mass Timber building in the United States when completed. It is designed with two separate buildings set upon a two-story, below-grade concrete podium. Lateral resistance for the buildings is provided by exposed concrete core walls while mass timber framing is optimized at the upper levels and transferred through the concrete framing at the lower levels.
