Yesterday’s CoreNet Summer Smash
|CoreNet celebrated the warm weather with drinks on the rooftop of OWP/P's offices at 111 W. Washington. Everyone was there (we heard Brett Favre would've been, but something came up), and they all had news to share!|
We snapped Opus North's John Dunneback, CoreNet guest Lisa Schultz, and Osman Construction Corp.'s Jordana Parker teetering near the edge. John tells us that Opus recently leased 165k-SF at the Landmark V building in Downers Grove to DeVry. Jordana says that Osman built Chicago's first green Walgreens (seems like a logical fit) at California and Diversey, complete with green roof.
Also in on the green movement was Cubellis' Jeffrey Liggett, here with CBRE's Ralph Gilbertsen, Pepper Construction's Tim Weidman, and Partners by Design, Inc.'s Andrea Martin. Cubellis is working on a LEED-Silver parking garage at Kinzie and Clark Streets. It'll only use building materials created within a 500 mile radius. (Also, we hear the heat expended by angry SUV?ers who can't fit into compact spots will be used to power the lights.)
