Award-winning Aqua at Lakeshore East selects Superior Reserve Engineering & Consulting as reserve study provider.
After an exhaustive review of the top reserve consulting firms in the industry, Superior Reserve Engineering & Consulting is honored to have been selected by the The Aqua at Lakeshore East's board of directors as their reserve study provider.
The Aqua at Lakeshore East is a landmark 81 story high-rise in Chicago's New Eastside neighborhood completed in 2009.
In 2009 The Aqua was named Emporis "Skyscraper of the year" and was shortlisted for the 2010 "International Highrise Award"
According to designer Jeanne Gang, The Aqua's captivating architecture was inspired by the striated limestone outcroppings that are common geographic features of the great lakes states. Other observers remark that the blue-glass facade and white balcony design resembles tropical water meeting white sand beaches.
The Aqua is the first Chicago building to combine a mixed-use of condominiums, apartments, and a hotel.
At a height of 859 feet, containing nearly 2 million square feet of floor space, the Aqua is a prominent addition to Chicago's famous skyline.
