July 25, 2007 – With the honor of being the very first condominium in Chicago to be given LEED certification for green construction and building features, the final touches were put on 340 On The Park and developers called the project complete this month. With so much recent focus on global warming and environmental issues, 340 On The Park is right in vogue with the concerns of many buyers and satisfies the desire to be a part of something positive.
340 rises up to a towering 64 floors and the condos there have a stunning view of Millennium and Grant Parks and Lake Michigan. All of that fresh green landscape and sky blue water adds to the “green” feel of the building. Developers took the green down to sidewalk level with landscaped planters along Randolph as well as on the roof top. The building also features a beautiful garden on the 25th floor, rain water collection system for the plants installed, and the outside of the building is sheathed in a type of insulated glass to help with temperature control.
340 On The Park shows that developers can successfully combine luxury condo construction with respect to the environment and offer quality homes to buyers in the process. The green building trend is much more popular on the East and West coasts, where trends usually start, but it is gaining momentum here in Chicago as well.
