LERA was the structural engineer for this office tower that spans 330 ft (100 m) across Marquette Plaza, in addition to a high-security facility below the plaza.


The 523,000-sf building features an unusual U-shaped design, the result of a groundbreaking support system that utilizes 16 catenary cables strung between two towers, which function much like the cables of a suspension bridge.
