Chicago Spire Access and Utilities | Shelbourne Development Group, Ltd.

Knight was part of a global team of architects and engineers tasked with providing services for the 2.2 acre lakefront property intended to be the home of the Chicago Spire. The untouched site featured only one access point. Knight developed additional access points both into and out of the site from Lake Shore Drive while providing solutions to mitigate local traffic impacts at various existing intersections throughout the already densely populated neighborhood. Knight provided relocation of affected stormwater, sanitary sewer and water systems, coordinated with affected utility companies and designed a new site connection to the Metropolitan Water Reclamation District of Greater Chicago’s Deep Tunnel.
