New City is a mixed-use development project that anchors the south end of Chicago’s Clybourn corridor. The development includes:
- 19-story high-rise residential tower, with 199 apartment units, located on top of a three-story retail base
- 363,000-sf of retail space in three separate buildings
- 14-screen ArcLight cinema
- 80,000-sf Mariano’s Grocery Store (IMEG provided interior build-out of this space)
- Six full-service restaurants
- Seven-level 1,100-space parking garage
- 22,000-sf below-grade loading dock
- Large central plaza outside green space
As one of the largest shell-and-core mixed-use projects to achieve LEED Gold in the Chicago area, sustainable designs include a variety of water and energy conserving measures such as rainwater collection and reuse for irrigation, high-efficiency boilers, heat recovery from exhaust airstreams, variable speed dryer exhaust and make-up air for the residential tower, reduced lighting wattages in the parking garage, and green roofs.
A central condenser water system provides heating and cooling capability for the retail spaces. A separate condenser water plant serves the residential tower. IMEG worked with Commonwealth Edison to utilize a single high voltage electrical vault located in the parking structure to serve three of the buildings.
