Moment - 545 N McClurg

Chicago, IL

Moment is a 47-story, mixed-use project in Chicago’s Streeterville neighborhood. The LEED Silver structure is composed of 540 rental apartments, retail space, and an attached garage with parking for 290 cars. Outdoor spaces include two large-scale amenity decks on the ninth floor, and a large rooftop area with an outdoor pool, sundeck, and lounge with views of the city and Lake Michigan.

The foundation consists of belled caissons, extending approximately 95 feet below grade. Outside the tower—in the attached garage—parking levels consist of one-way, post-tensioned slabs, supported by post-tensioned beams. Under the tower—where irregular column grids support the residential floors above—parking levels consist of two-way, conventionally reinforced concrete slabs. For the residential floors, 8-inch conventionally reinforced concrete slabs were used. The lateral system consists of concrete shearwalls surrounding the elevators and stairs, while additional shearwall extensions control building movement and overturning forces.
