Salesforce Tower Chicago is making its debut as the 17th tallest skyscraper in the Windy City.This emerging steel marvel will feature 1.2 million usable square feet and stand 60 stories above the peninsular 333 Wolf Point Plaza. From ground level to the top floor, Salesforce Tower Chicago will boast a glass-clad exterior framed by highstrength steel. The secret to this 25,000-square foot-glass-plated tower’s structural soundness lies within the beautiful synergy of architecture and engineering and the most advanced high-strength steel available domestically.
In order to achieve the design of a glass façade and column-free corners, Magnusson Klemencic Associates(MKA), the Engineer-of-Record, and Walsh Construction, the General Contractor, opted for Nucor’s new Aeos™ high-strength steel. Download this case study to learn more about this project.
