A new parking garage…a new GREEN parking garage in River North.

Posted by ChicagoismynewBlog! on June 6, 2009


Located at 60 W. Kinzie Street, the Greenway Self Park Garage is currently under construction in Chicago’s River North neighborhood with a completion date for mid 2009.  Now that I think of it, it’s already mid 2009 so I guess the completion date has been pushed back a bit.  Developed by Friedman Properties, the Greenway Self Park Garage has many exciting green elements including six wind turbines, which will provide electricity for all exterior lighting, even adding excess electricity to the city power grid.  Other green features include a green roof, rain cisterns, a bike room, and six plug-in stations for electric vehicles on the first few floors. 

GreenBeanChicago.com has a lot of information about the Greenway Self Park Garage…check out their site by clicking here.

    Seriously! Did you have any one working on this project that was not brain dead? Who recommended that you install vertical axis wind turbines in a recessed corner on an elevation of the building? If the only purpose of the wind turbines is to be some form of industrial art work, then I guess you succeeded.
    Just curious, who many KW Hours per month are they producing??
    Who’s idea was that? Bovis??? HOK??
