The Sinclair is home to 390 luxury apartments in Chicago’s Gold Coast neighborhood. Situated on 1.5-acres of prime real estate with frontage on Clark, LaSalle, and Division, this location is adjacent to the newly reconstructed Red Line Clark/Division subway station.
One of the challenges Eriksson Engineering Associates, Ltd. (EEA)’s team tackled was to integrate the proposed underground utilities with the new subway infrastructure. EEA engineers collaborated with the Chicago Transit Authority (CTA) to problem solve and safely integrate existing CTA vents with proposed driveways, detention vaults, and utility services.
The unique shape of the property created drainage challenges. EEA’s stormwater experts worked with City of Chicago engineers to develop a stormwater management plan that met the City’s requirements while remaining economical to construct.
