Overview

Lakeshore East is a 27-acre multi-use planned development in the heart of Chicago’s lakefront comprised of 9.7 million square feet of buildable area that includes a mix of townhouse and high-rise buildings, a Chicago public school, a hotel, office space, and a new public park. Epstein provided civil and structural engineering design and construction administration services for the development of the roadway system and infrastructure.

Process

Epstein was responsible for the design of approximately 3,300 lineal feet of roadway, a 250-foot long bridge structure, approximately 2,000 lineal feet of retaining wall, as well as 16,000 feet of storm sewer, sanitary sewer, and water main serving the development.A new out fall to the Chicago River was constructed to allow discharge of the storm water from the site.Approval for the river outfall was obtained from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, the Illinois Department of Natural Resources and the Illinois Environmental Protection Agency.Epstein worked very closely with the City of Chicago Department of Transportation, Bureau of Underground Coordination & Department of Sewers and other reviewing agencies in order to obtain the required approvals and permits. The project also required significant coordination with utility companies such as ComEd, Peoples Gas and SBC.
