An exciting office and retail destination in the fast-growing Fulton Market neighborhood of Chicago and the Nation’s first office building designed to deliver health-focused operating solutions for post-COVID-19 business environment.
Fulton East, a newly constructed 12-story office and retail building located at 215 N. Peoria St. in the heart of Chicago’s Fulton Market District is the nation’s first next-generation office building designed to specifically address employee health, safety, and wellness in today’s post-COVID-19 business environment. Completed in Q4 2020, the building accommodates the safe and healthy return of employees to the office, features state-of-the-art wellness technology, and efficient 10,605 SF floor plates to enable flexible, custom planning options designed to accommodate safe social distancing.
During the rise of COVID-19, Fulton East’s development team invested intense research into identifying new, leading-edge products that enhance the health, safety, and wellness of its tenants’ employees. The building now includes the world’s first new construction installation of Canada-based MAD Elevator Inc.’s Toe-To-Go (T2G) hands-free elevator system with foot-activated call buttons for a hands-free elevator experience.
The project is also the first multi-story office building to employ airPHX non-thermal plasma technology to reduce cross-contaminant risks and provide cleaner air and work surfaces. The airPHX technology is currently in use in hospitals, dental clinics, college athletic facilities, and commercial settings.
Fulton East offers tenants floor-to-ceiling glass providing direct views of the Chicago skyline while maximizing natural light to each suite. The building features outdoor balconies and a private rooftop park, all of which are attractive elements for corporate tenants seeking space in the burgeoning Fulton Market neighborhood.
Fulton East received LEED certification for the project’s reduced urban heat island effect by installing reflective roofing + 2,925 SQFT vegetated space on the amenity deck, and locating all building parking undercover. The project also achieved 79% baseline reduction in outdoor water use via effective irrigation methods, and 31% baseline reduction in indoor water use via low flush/flow fixtures, and achieved maximum points in the Low Emitting Materials credit- occupant health was a priority in the material selection.
