Hotel JulianChicago, IL
TGRWA provided the structural design, working drawings, and construction phase services for the new addition and renovation of the existing 13-story building at 168 N. Michigan Ave. The project included converting the building, originally constructed in 1911 for offices, into a boutique hotel with a ground-floor restaurant. Structural highlights required for the new programming included: new 5-story steel-framed addition rising from the top of the existing 13-story structure, strengthen the lateral system due to higher loading from the addition, reinforce existing deteriorated beams and columns, and repair existing slabs at each floor.
