Adams/Wabash Parking Garage

A twelve-story, 275,000 sf, 700-vehicle parking facility with 15,000 sf of ground-level retail. The Adams and Wabash elevations are precast concrete and painted architectural cast-in-place concrete. The structure itself is constructed of an encapsulated post-tensioned support slab system, allowing column spans of almost 60 feet.

Project logistics made the Adams/Wabash Garage challenging. Tucked between Chicago’s elevated train tracks, an alley that remained open, an office building and Adams Street, construction proceeded smoothly due to in-depth coordination with all involved entities.
