PRUDENTIAL ONE LOBBY
JLL selected Bear Construction Company to redevelop the main entrance lobby of the Prudential One building, which serves tens of thousands of building occupants, CTA and Metra commuters each day. Bear maintained access to various building entrances, the transfer escalators and dozens of elevators throughout the 7 month process. Pedestrian traffic was re-routed several times as the project moved from phase to phase, each time unveiling a new section of the improved lobby. Elaborate millwork and lighting packages, a new terrazzo floor, glass railings and a Nelson architectural metal panel system were some of the highlights of the project, which also created a new tenant café and hospitality areas. Bear also provided the infrastructure for the 50’ wide video screen, one of the largest in Chicago. We’re proud to have been a part of the great team that revitalized this Chicago icon.
