Sustainable shopping center opens in Chicago's South Loop

August 01, 2008 |

Located in Chicago's South Loop, the Southgate Market was designed by Eckenhoff Saunders Architects, Chicago, to have more of an urban market rather than suburban mall feel, with a completely exposed concrete interior. The $55 million, 900,000-sf center houses several retail chains and other businesses. It features a glass elevator core, a rainwater-collecting cistern, an energy-efficient HVAC system, and insulated glass with low-e coating that reduces heat gain by 50%. The shopping center also features a taste of Chicago with an outdoor suspended bridge covered in ivy.
