Building Description

Hyatt Center is the first building built in Chicago post 9/11, thus post-9/11 security measures are integrated into a welcoming lobby. The LEED® Platinum-certified building is set back on a 61,000 square foot site and offers a blocklong oasis of green along Monroe Street for thousands of commuters. Building features include full-height glass with textured steel spandrels and polished aluminum mullions. A partial “green” roof provides natural insulation and reduces the heat island effect
