Gilbane Building Company Awarded High-End Condo Project in Downtown Chicago


Gilbane Building Company has been selected by Kiferbaum Development Group to provide construction services for a unique, high-end condominium in downtown Chicago.

Located in the heart of River North, the new 13-story condominium will contain 11 units, consisting of 10 full-floor units and one duplex unit occupying the top two floors. In addition, all 11 units will have direct elevator access. Parking will be provided on grade, within the footprint of the tower.

The caisson-supported structure is a combination of cast-in-place concrete for the cores, and structural steel with concrete-on-metal decking for the typical decks. The exterior is comprised of window wall and metal panels, while the interior includes high-end finishes. The logistically-challenging site requires the use of an adjacent vacant lot where most staging will occur, as well as the use of City-approved adjacent alleys.

“Gilbane is pleased to add the 56 W. Huron project to our growing developer and residential portfolio in downtown Chicago. We look forward to partnering with Kiferbaum and other project stakeholders on this exciting project,” said Gary Thalheimer, Vice President/District Manager at Gilbane Building Company.    

Construction began in the fourth quarter of 2017 after an intensive preconstruction effort and will conclude in October 2018.

About the Author: Carrie Brunner

Carrie Brunner grew up in a small town in northern New Brunswick. She studied chemistry in college, graduated, and married her husband one month later. They were then blessed with two baby boys within the first four years of marriage. Having babies gave their family a desire to return to the old paths – to nourish their family with traditional, homegrown foods; rid their home of toxic chemicals and petroleum products; and give their boys a chance to know a simple, sustainable way of life. They are currently building a homestead from scratch on two little acres in central Texas. There’s a lot to be done to become somewhat self-sufficient, but they are debt-free and get to spend their days living this simple, good life together with their five young children. Carrie writes mostly on provincial stories.
