504 Green Street Apartments

Chicago, IL

504 Green Street, exterior


504 Green Street Apartments (formerly known as Kenect) was developed by Akara Partners with architecture by Pappageorge Haymes. The facility features both a low-rise and a high-rise component, totaling about 252,000 square feet. The facilities were constructed concurrently with different completion dates, which dictated the phasing of GBA’s commissioning project. LEED fundamental and dnhanced commissioning scope were provided, including mechanical, electrical, and plumbing systems.


This development includes 227 apartments, plus 14,000 square feet of retail/commercial space, two large interior amenity spaces, and a rooftop pool deck. For both the low-rise and high-rise components, GBA provided design-phase, construction-phase, and occupancy/operations-phase commissioning. In the high-rise portion of the project, GBA identified multiple issues through eight field observation visits, and 55 construction issues through a combination of observations and functional performance testing. Seventeen construction issues were identified in the low-rise portion of the project, again through a combination of field observations and tests. Systems manuals were provided for the building operating staff, intended to supplement training activities provided by the construction contractors.
