111 South Wacker
Located at what is commonly referred to as “the best location in downtown Chicago,” 111 South Wacker Drive is one of Chicago’s most prestigious Class-A office towers. With the modern office-user in mind, SCB designed 40,000 square feet of unparalleled interior amenity spaces on the 10th, 11th, and 29th floors, contributing to making the building one of the most desired workplaces in Chicago. Expansive views of downtown can be seen in all corners of the amenity spaces, allowing for abundant natural light and a connection to the energy of the surrounding city.
For tenants looking to be active during the work day, the 10th and 11th amenity floors feature a newly renovated and expanded fitness center with a steam room, yoga studio, golf simulator, and shuffleboard. To craft a balance with the industrial elements, materials such as high-gloss metal surfaces are paired with warm wood accents to create texture and a sophisticated, yet comfortable atmosphere. SCB designed an interconnecting stair that adds visual interest and an openness to the space, and also facilitates interaction between the two floors.
The 11th floor hosts a large, Wi-Fi-enabled tenant lounge and coffee bar designed with oversized pendant lighting, custom-made built-in banquettes, and an exposed wood ceiling, delivering an urban chic design aesthetic.
One of the most prominent design features on the 29th floor is a 400-seat double-height conference space designed to be divisible by a sky-fold partition, offering a large amount of pre-function space. The thoughtful selection of back-lit perforated ceiling panels creates soft lighting and is inspired by the city lights at night. Inside the conference space, stepped wall panels with cove lighting celebrates the high ceilings and creates visual motion and a dramatic impact. During the warmer months, tenants can take advantage of an outdoor terrace with comfortable patio furniture and views of downtown.
