The new residential high rise is scheduled to open in November 2018

Chicago, IL – April 17, 2018 – Gilbane Building Company recently celebrated a major milestone at the 56 W. Huron Condo project in Chicago, Illinois. The topping out ceremony for this high profile residential project was attended by representatives from Kiferbaum Development Group, Gilbane and our subcontractor partners. The event took place on the project site with a beam signing ceremony to commemorate the special occasion.

Located in the heart of River North, the new 13-story condominium will contain 11 units, consisting of 10 full-floor units and one duplex unit occupying the top two floors. In addition, all 11 units will have direct elevator access. Parking will be provided on grade, within the footprint of the tower. Construction began in the fourth quarter of 2017 after an intensive preconstruction effort and will conclude in November 2018.

“Gilbane is proud of the entire project team on achieving this critical milestone with no lost-time injuries. I can’t say enough about our team and the work they’ve done to get us to this significant milestone of the project.” said Jon Bos, Gilbane Building Company Project Executive
