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.
