VERSION 2____300 North LaSalle is a 60-story mixed-use building, constructed from 2006 to 2009, located on the north bank of the Chicago River on the Near North Side community area of Chicago, Illinois, United States. The building contains 1.3 million square feet of space to include offices, retail shops, restaurants, and public spaces, as well as three levels of underground parking. Due to its location on the north bank of the Chicago River, the building features a half-acre sunlit waterfront public garden with direct access to the river's edge. The structural steel was fabricated and erected by Cives Steel Co. and detailed by Maine Detailers, a division of Cives Steel Co. The building's developer Hines has obtained LEED Gold pre-certification, which establishes the building as a major sustainable design development. The plan is to achieve LEED Gold Certification by incorporating environmentally friendly and energy efficient materials and systems. The building is designed to maximize the use of daylight, while minimizing solar heat gain. The building was sold from the Hines companies on July 29, 2010, to KBS REIT II, Inc., a Southern California real estate investment fund.
