Since 1976, the office has completed more than 600 projects valued at well over $19 billion including landmark projects such as the Harold Washington Library Center, the Navy Pier Reconstruction, Chicagoland Speedway, Children’s Memorial Medical Center, the O’Hare International Airport Development program and Trump International Hotel & Tower.

Current projects underway include Northwestern Memorial Hospital’s Outpatient Care Pavilion; 500 North Lake Shore Drive, a residential high-rise; 111 West Wacker, the transition of a building that was abandoned during mid-construction into luxury into a luxury apartment building; Clark and Grand Hotels, a new hotel with three signature hotel brands; and renovations and additions to The University of Chicago’s Laboratory Schools.

In addition, the Lend Lease Chicago office served as construction manager for the Chicago Public Schools’ Capital Improvement Program, more than 20 suburban school districts, and has completed assignments for institutions of higher learning such as The University of Chicago, Northwestern University and Illinois Institute of Technology.
