CHICAGO, Jan. 26 /PRNewswire/ -- James McHugh Construction Co. has completed Streeter Place, a new luxury apartment tower in Chicago's Streeterville neighborhood, McHugh officials announced.

The 54-story building, located at 355 E. Ohio St., is the second phase of a two-building complex developed by Chicago-based Golub & Company LLC on behalf of the owner, OGM Investors II LLC. Designed by Solomon Cordwell Buenz and Associates, it features 480 apartments and a 402-space parking garage.  Streeter Place is the mirror image of The Streeter, the adjacent apartment tower developed first by Golub.

Its 12-story base includes approximately 10,000 square feet of retail space and a number of amenities, including a lobby with signature blue accent walls, business services center, party room, game room, reading lounge, upscale media room and fitness center with two indoor spas. The base is capped by an outdoor terrace with a swimming pool and extensive landscaping.

Streeter Place incorporates a number of green features, most notably the Azuria glass that sheaths its exterior. This energy-efficient glass maximizes interior sunlight and minimizes heat buildup. Other environmentally friendly features include an underground crushed stone reservoir for storm water runoff, with permeable pavers atop it, a green roof, and a densely landscaped urban park outside the entrance. A pull-in drop-off lane at Streeter Place's entrance, which also services The Streeter, helps reduce traffic congestion on Ohio Street.

Apartments range from studios to three-bedroom homes, with no more than 11 apartments per floor, and include floor-to-ceiling windows, granite counter tops, maple cabinets in kitchens and baths, stainless steel appliances, upgraded light fixtures, and wiring for high-speed Internet access.

Despite the challenge of working in a highly congested area, McHugh completed 15 of the building's residential floors early, said John Kelly, McHugh senior project manager. "We have had a great working relationship with Golub and Solomon Cordwell Buenz," Kelly said. "I credit the good relationship and the genuine concerted effort by all parties with completing this building early and within budget."

McHugh performed all interior build-out services for the project and also self-performed concrete work for the cast-in-place structure. To support the building, the team drilled 59 caissons into the site.

Founded in 1897, McHugh, www.mchughconstruction.com, is one of Chicago's oldest and largest general contracting, construction management and consulting firms.
