Chicago-based Skidmore, Owings, and Merrill (SOM) have unveiled new images of their proposed 18-story office tower in the trendy Fulton Market area of Chicago. “The Porch,” situated on 330 North Green, will feature a five-story open-air deck, and series of luxury amenities to support the new office environment.

The 670,000-square-foot (62,000-square-meter) SOM scheme features floor-to-ceiling windows set behind exposed steel, with a center core construction maximizing natural light and open space. Set on a 30ft x 30ft (9m x 9m) grid, and a floor-to-ceiling height of 14ft (4.2m), the interior provides flexible co-working and event space, supported by an outdoor fitness terrace, cafe, bar, library, and 200 car parking spaces.

A key component to the scheme is a five-story open-air deck overlooking Chicago’s West Loop, accessed via a folding glass façade. Other outdoor spaces include a 7700-square-foot (715-square-meter) fitness deck with paddle tennis courts and a 6000-square-foot (550-square-meter) rooftop indoor/outdoor tenant lounge with expansive views across the city. On ground floor, the scheme will integrate into the neighborhood with 25,000 square feet (2300 square meters) of retail.
