CHICAGO-Hines has broken ground on a new 60-story, 1.5-million-sf office tower in Downtown Chicago at 300 N. LaSalle, a site situated on the north bank of the Chicago River. The project is scheduled for completion in early 2009.
The anchor tenant is the Chicago-based law firm of Kirkland & Ellis, which has signed a lease for more 600,000 sf, and will relocate its world headquarters, which includes 1,400 Chicago office employees, from 200 E. Randolph Dr.

The tower was initially financed by J.P Morgan Chase with $310 million, Greg Van Schaack, a senior vice president with Hines' regional Chicago office, tells GlobeSt.com. He adds that the financing will likely increase as the tower is developed.

Industry experts agree that the tenant is a boon for Hines, but that the Chicago commercial real estate industry could be creating a void by vacating some older buildings. The addition of an office tower to the Chicago Loop could create some dissention, says Dennis Schubert, a real estate economist with Boston-based Property & Portfolio Research.
"With the addition of new towers in the Loop, landlords are being forced to make upgrades, and the space being vacated is leaving a big void," Schubert tells GlobeSt.com.

At the same time, “Kirkland & Ellis is excited to be involved in a project that will redefine Chicago’s famous skyline,” says Kevin Evanich, a partner at Kirkland and a member of the firm’s management committee. “We look forward to seeing this project progress and creating a new world-class home for our firm."

The tower is positioned to attract additional top-tier professional firms and companies to its tenant roster, according to Greg Van Schaack, a senior vice president at Hines’ Chicago regional office. The company will occupy 24 floors in the low-rise and mid-rise sections of the building leaving some 400,000 sf of high-rise space available for additional leasing. At press time, the building was 50% preleased.

Designed by the architectural firm Pickard Chilton, 300 N. LaSalle will rise 800 feet. Its facade will be clad in articulated glass and stainless steel, which is intended to maximize daylight while minimizing the sun’s glare. With 220 feet of frontage along the Chicago River, the property’s outdoor plaza will feature a large waterfront café and significant seating areas. Other planned amenities include a three-level, 240-car parking garage, white tablecloth restaurant, fitness center, conference center, bank and sundry shop.

The caisson drilling rig is now on site. It's the same one that was at Waterview a short time ago. You can tell by the History Channel logo painted on the back.
