Chicago Architects Brininstool + Lynch: AFW


Chicago, Illinois

In Progress

This new 22-story office building in Chicago’s Near West Side is designed for today’s technology-based work environments. Strategically located in one of the city’s most creative and vibrant neighborhoods, AFW will be an important visual landmark in a fast-developing area for innovative and technological businesses. With uninterrupted floor-to-ceiling views to the Loop, the building provides 13-stories of column-free, super-efficient, open-plan office space, while still providing private offices, meeting room capabilities, and in-office amenities. Private club amenities on the top floors include work-out areas, a swimming pool, bar, restaurant, and party/meeting spaces. Designed to maximize views out of the building and daylight penetration into the building, this unique office environment will optimize space, flexibility, and views of Chicago like no other building in the city.
