 million building to be scaled by Rock climbers

An $11 million building permit has been issued by Chicago for indoor rock climbers at 1111 W. Addison St. The site was previously occupied by a Taco Bell restaurant. The general contractor is Summit Design + Build, LLC.

44th Ward Ald. Tom Tunney reports on his web page that, “The building will feature up to three retail tenants on the ground floor, with the upper three floors being dedicated to a single tenant, Planet Granite, which is a ‘bouldering’ and fitness facility.”

Tunney wrote, “The 65’ tall structure is approximately 58,000 sq. ft. and will have loading and bike parking in the rear and up to 20 parking spaces leased out to use by retail patrons on non-Wrigley Field event days at the public parking garage that is currently under construction at the ‘Clark and Addison’ project.”

“The exterior of the building is primarily glass and metal panel, and it’s ‘folded plane’ geometry allows the building to create small terraces for retail tenants and create setbacks to the building so its scale can adjust to the heights of the residential buildings to the west of it,” Tunney wrote. :”The east and west façade will also have a large super graphic overlaid onto the metal panels themed to echo aspects of the anchor tenants climbing facility to give these two building elevations more visual interest.”

The Electrical sub trader is MGD Electric; masonry– Tor Construction Company Inc.; plumber/plumbing – Lakeshore Plumbing, Inc., refrigeration and ventilation – Comfort Temperature Zone, Inc.
