Disregarding heights, but the style of Aqua is what we see in Oz all the time. We are quite used to the wavey undulating balconies but I guess they are not common in the States.

Aqua is going to be a doozy.

Chicago, Illinois, USA: The Regatta

The Climbing Protection Panel CPP
Working Safer and Quicker 44 Floors High

The Lakeshore East development area in Chicago is a 26 acre parcel of land located on the South bank of the Chicago River at Lake Michigan. This area will be a host to over 25 new structures in the next few years. The Regatta building marks James McHugh Construction`s third project at Lakeshore East, along with the Lancaster (see PERI scope 2005).

This 466 ft (142 m) building will sore 44 stories in the air and provide over 700,000 ft² (65,000 m²) of living space with over 325 condominium units.

One of the interesting features of this structure is the curved curtain wall facing Lake Michigan. This unique structure provided itself with the ideal opportunity for PERI to supply the new Climbing Protection Panel (CPP).
  • The CPP system encloses the work enviroment, providing a comfortable and safe working area. The system ensures delays due to weather are minimized and production levels are increased by eliminating the need to work on a ledge of a 44 story building. The CPP is lifted by a crane and simply connected to the slab via a bracket. The system uses a plywood backing connected to steel supports, making it easy to attached any necessary signage. An ideal platform for advertising and providing a weather tight system at the same time.
  • PERI also provided the VARIO wall formwork system, the SKYDECK modular slab formwork system, the Automatic Climbing System (ACS) and QUATTRO columns for this project.
Contractor: James McHugh Construction, Chicago, IL
Field Service: PERI Chicago / PERI Weissenhorn


Incorporating PERI’s know-how on this project enabled James McHugh to keep schedule a priority. The main placing boom located in the middle of the floor was designed to be carried by the Automatic Climbing System, eliminating the extra crane time needed to move the system separately.

^Isn't that the same technology that the Trump building will employ? McHugh is the General Contactor over there as well. For the ad space, I'm sure Trump will have something up there like here did for his Annex visit. Thanks for posting that.

Chicago, IL, USA: The Shoreham (49 stories)

Walls and Slabs Poured Monolithically Using
ACS-G – The Automatic Climbing System with Gallow

The Shoreham is one of the first two high rises being constructed on the Lake Shore East Development area in downtown Chicago, IL. This 49-story condominium tower is designed with floor to ceiling glass and vertical bands of exposed concrete with two sets of recessed balconies. PERI was awarded the contract to supply the forming solution for the walls, decks, core structure and facade.

The various systems supplied by PERI included SKYDECK for the underground parking levels, MULTIFLEX for the upper levels, PERI TRIO and custom DOMINO for the interior walls and VARIO including ACS-G for both core structures and the KG 240 climbing bracket for the external shear walls. The ACS-G (gallow) system was designed with the internal panel having an offset, thereby allowing the wall and floor to be poured monolithically. This design feature enabled the client to pour various floor heights by simply adding extension splices to the top of the VARIO panel.

Contractor: Walsh Constr. Co., Chicago, IL
Field Support: PERI Germany, Weissenhorn / PERI Chicago - Formwork and Scaffolding

The slabs were formed using SKYDECK modular slab formwork and MULTIFLEX loose-frame slab formwork for the perimeters.

Chicago, IL, USA: The Lancaster (99 m, 324 ft)

PERI's ACS and SKYDECK Systems Achieve 3 Day Pour Cycle

The Lancaster is another highrise being built in the Lake Shore development area in Chicago, IL. This 324 ft (99 m), 30-story condominium tower is only one of the 14 high rise buildings that are to be constructed in the area.

The exterior ACS-R platforms supplied by PERI were capable of lifting more than 30 tons, enabling McHugh Construction to use intricate steel forms with ease. By using the lightweight DOMINO Wall Formwork system on the inside of the perimeter walls, PERI provided McHugh with a fast, flexible and safe forming solution. The wall formwork system was designed to allow James McHugh Construction to sequence either the wall or slab construction independent of one another. This ensured a flexible product that would permit them to adjust the pour sequence accordingly.

Field Support: PERI Germany, Weissenhorn / PERI Chicago

Interesting figures

http://www.lakeshoreeast.com/mediaro..._majority.html

SUBURBS PRODUCE LARGE MAJORITY OF BUYERS AT BOOMING NEW LAKESHORE EAST COMMUNITY
June 20, 2006

By a majority of nearly 2-to-1, suburbanites are outnumbering city-based buyers flocking to the blossoming new Lakeshore East community on the New East Side with out-of-staters logging in 15 percent of total sales.

A demographic breakdown of the first five luxury condominium towers completed, under development or being pre-construction marketed in the new neighborhood near the confluence of Lake Michigan and the Chicago River with a combined total of 1,449 residences reveals:

• 690 purchasers, or 55 percent of the total, come from Chicago suburbs
• Another 391 or 30 percent are from the city
• 165 or 15 percent are from out of state
• Another 3 are from outside the United States (Canada, Italy and Singapore)


“While sales from the city remain strong, we find interesting a subtle shift of the proportion from the suburbs and out-of-state buyers as the community has evolved,” observed David Carlins, president of Magellan Development Group, LLC, the developer of Lakeshore East.

The first completed and occupied condominium tower in the community is The Lancaster, a 29-story structure designed by Loewenberg Architects with 209 residences. Nearing completion sold-out with first occupancy scheduled for August is The Regatta. Designed by DeStefano + Partners Inc., the 44-story building contains 325 residences.

Two condominiums under construction are The Chandler and 340 on the Park.

The 35-story The Chandler, with 304 residences, was also designed by DeStefano + Partners. It is 90 percent sold and initial occupancy is projected for 2007.

340 on the Park, a joint venture of LR Development Co. and Magellan, is under construction at 340 E. Randolph. Sales at the 348-unit, 62-story tower designed by Solomon Cordwell Buenz & Associates are at the 80% level with occupancy also projected for 2007.

The newest addition to Lakeshore east is Aqua, a unique 80-story mixed-use skyscraper uniquely designed by award-winning architect Jeanne Gang of Studio Gang. The Aqua marketing program was launched April 8 and 66 percent of the luxury condominiums included in the building's design have been reserved

Aqua, which will be the tallest and most distinctive residential building in downtown Chicago, will be the first high-rise in the city designed uniquely to combine condos, rental, hotel and retail spaces in a single structure. It is also believed to be the tallest building ever designed by an architectural firm headed by a woman.
While 21 other states have produced buyers at Lakeshore East, the Midwestern states of Indiana, Michigan and Wisconsin are joined by sunshine states California and Florida and New York City as the most popular non-Illinois purchasers.

Lakeshore East is evolving as a mixed-use lifestyle center where people can live, work, shop, eat and pursue whatever interests them without having to get into a car.

The plan that completes the ambitious Illinois Center development allows for the construction of up to 4,950 residences, a magnificent 6-acre public park, 2.2 million gross square feet of commercial space, 1,500 hotel rooms, 770,000 square feet of retail space and a proposed elementary school.

Some 40 percent of the site will remain vibrant open space. Among the award-winning Lakeshore East park’s many attractions is free Wi-Fi or wireless broadband Internet access. Other park amenities include a children’s play park, a gated dog park, a large open meadow, water fountains, ornamental gardens and extensive seating.

Residential developments at Lakeshore East, in addition to the condominium properties, currently include The Shoreham, a completed and occupied 46-story apartment tower with 548 residences and the 51-story The Tides, the community’s second rental property with 607 luxury units. It also is under construction. And the first phase of Parkhomes at Lakeshore East, an enclave of 24 gracious and distinctive single-family homes bordering the new award-winning public park, is in the final design stage and expected to be brought to market by summer 2006.
