CHICAGO — The project management group of Colliers Bennett & Kahnweiler has overseen the completion of the $6.5 million design and build-out for the British School of Chicago, located at 814 W. Eastman St. in Chicago’s Cabrini-Green neighborhood. The school is leasing approximately 75,000 square feet of the five-story building, with the remaining ground-floor space available for retail lease. The facility features a full-size gym, a cafeteria, science and industrial technology labs, a music program, art rooms and a 10,000-square-foot rooftop playground. The project achieved LEED-Silver certification, and includes a green roof, low-flush toilets, low-polluting HVAC systems and a building automation system that lowers energy usage. The school is part of a 175,000-square-foot mixed-use project currently under development by Structured Development. The project will also include a retail component and a parking garage, and is scheduled for completion in the summer. The school, which moved from its previous location at 1643 W. Bryn Mawr Ave., opened in January. The base building architect was Valerio DeWalt Train, and the school’s architect was ISI/Epstein.
