Sequoia was selected to construct a 55,000 SF 2 story office-retail building (known as MSP-E) in downtown Naperville, immediately adjacent to the City public parking garage. The project scope included the tear up and complete reconstruction of Main St between Benton and Van Buren Streets. A unique feature of the structure is part of the 1st floor space was constructed under the elevated 2nd floor level of the parking deck. The structure consisted of a steel frame, supported slab, with the exterior walls being structural studs, 7 different brick types, and cast stone with curtain walls and windows.
The mandatory 8 month schedule was attained through the 2nd harshest winter (2013-2014) on record. Site logistics, to construct the building in downtown Naperville, was coordinated with Naperville Building and Public Works departments to implement multiple traffic and pedestrian detours and access routes to assure minimal public interference. The architectural design of the façade was carefully integrated to compliment the façade features of its sister building 50 S. Main Street.
Sequoia also built out retail spaces on the 1st and 2nd floors whose businesses and presence were welcomed into the vibrant atmosphere of downtown Naperville
