The owners of this iconic, mixed-use building on Chicago’s Magnificent Mile brought in DMA to accomplish a unique transformation: converting eight floors of high-rise office space into 47 high-end condominiums. The $55 million, 200,000-square-foot project includes renovation of a dedicated lobby and elevators. DMA advised the client in selecting the best-suited contractor and finish level for the project. We scheduled and managed work to avoid disturbing existing tenants on floors above and below the new residences. The building also houses the Four Seasons Hotel, seven levels of luxury retail, additional office space, and an earlier condominium development.
DMA completed the transformation on time and within budget. All of the units in The Residences at 900 sold. Each offers dramatic city views and custom luxury finishes, and the lobby features distinctive art and sculpture. DMA assisted buyers with finish selections and ensured that final touches met expectations. In parallel, we managed the development of an appealing amenity—a green roof that serves as a private terrace for residents.
