Chicago-based Focus is pleased to announce they have been selected to act as the general contractor for a new Old Town project by Miami Beach-based Lakshmi Capital Management, 343 W. Schiller.

343 W. Schiller is a 105,000 SF apartment building featuring nine stories and 105 multifamily units with ground-floor retail. Unbeatable amenities include an interior dog run, fitness room, luxury lounge, ninth floor terrace complete with grills and firepits and heated indoor parking.

Designed by Brininstool + Lynch, the building will include a fiber cement rainscreen, and it will be the first building in Chicago to use Intus high performance windows to improve energy efficiency. Lakshmi has also brought on local, Cullen Construction Management to act as Owner’s Rep. Lead by Chris Hume, Executive Vice President and supported by Sarah Baresel, Project Executive, Cullen will provide project oversight during the construction of 343 W. Schiller.

The Focus construction team was selected due to their depth of mid-rise construction experience and ability to navigate a small site in a dense neighborhood. The Focus team is led by Senior Project Manager Wade Giorno. Focus anticipates the project will be completed in the Spring of 2020.
