Aqua Tower - Chicago Architect Jeanne Gang

Added by | 10 yearss ago


Chicago Architect Jeanne Gang (Studio Gang) talks to WTTW TV Chicago Tonight on her work and the New Residential Tower 'Aqua", (June 2009). The Building Faces Millennium Park. American Architect Frank Gehry designed the Pritzker Pavilion (band shell) in Millennium Park. I think building is seeking Green/ LEED certification. Don't think Gang mentioned other architecture firm involved, the Architect of Record. (Why?) Costs reported at $475 million (way up from initial $300 construction cost reported. Wonder if this created problems w/ owner/developer.) I always find it dishonest when the Architect of Record is not Listed on a project. 82 Stories tall; Mixed-Use. Wikipedia is reporting slow leasing, some commercial tenants pulling out due to 2008-09 economic climate. Wiki reporting developer failing to complete its obligation to complete public paths to building. Sound level on this clip is low, so turn UP VOLUME.
