The COVID-19 pandemic restrictions on construction activity hasn’t stoped progress in preparing for the start of one of Chicago’s most ambitious developments — the Salesforce Tower Chicago at 333 Wolf Point Plaza Dr.

Chicago issued on April 7 a $50 million building permit for the “caisson, foundation and structure up to grade level for a new 58-story office building, scope to include foundation and ERS system, below-grade parking levels, and level 1 floor slab.”

Developer Hines says the structure “will be the third phase of the Wolf Point master plan—a three-phase development designed by Pelli Clarke Pelli—located on one of the last remaining riverfront sites in Downtown Chicago. Hines is developing Salesforce Tower Chicago in partnership with longtime land owner, the Joseph P. Kennedy Family.”The developer says the building will be “the most advanced and amenitized office building in Chicago.

“With an average floor plate size of 24,500 rentable square feet, the building will offer efficient planning for a variety of office users. Amenities will include a club-quality fitness center with locker rooms and showers, a conference center with multiple configurations and capacity sizes, a tenant lounge and approximately 25,000 square feet of commercial retail space, including a variety of food and beverage concepts.”

The project’s general contractor (and masonry contractor) is Walsh Construction Company and the plumber/plumber for the below-grade work is Norman Mechanical.

A separate permit will be issued for the above-grade structure.
