Skender recently started interior construction of the 536,000-square-foot office relocation for Bank of America’s (BofA) downtown Chicago offices. In addition to naming rights for the 56-story high-rise, the Charlotte, North Carolina-based financial institution will move into 17 floors of the new tower.
Serving as general contractor, Skender is collaborating with Interior Architects and JLL to complete the project with delivery beginning in Q4 of 2020. The Class A tower, perched along the Chicago River, was co-developed by Howard Hughes Corp. and Riverside Investment & Development and designed by Goettsch Partners. When completed, Bank of America Tower will be the city’s tallest new office building in 30 years.
Relocating from its current Chicago location at 135 S. LaSalle, close to half of the downtown BofA employees will move to the Bank of America Tower at 110 N. Wacker. BofA’s new space will include private offices, open workstation areas, conference rooms, work cafe/pantries, support space and other modern workplace amenities. Unique features include a trading floor, a barista bar and market cafe and two dedicated outdoor terraces. In addition, the interior will include an internal monument staircase connecting a two-floor conference center/executive suite.
