Luxury High-Rise on the South Branch of the Chicago River

Our team provided mechanical, electrical, plumbing, and fire protection design-build services for the first completed building in the Southbank development. The residential development stands along the south branch of the Chicago River between West Harrison Street and the Marina City Apartments. The completed development extends the Chicago Riverwalk and centers around a two-acre park.

The Cooper is a 29-story high-rise building with 452 rental apartments and townhomes, retail space, and parking. Amenities include a rooftop lounge and terrace, demonstration kitchen, fitness center, co-working space, music room, spa and resident lounge, and gaming areas. The project is pursuing LEED Silver certification and will comply with the Chicago sustainability design matrix as required by a planned development.
