Over the past few weeks, construction crews have used cranes to erect the steel support structure for Building #1. The profile of the building is now visible, including the angled corner entry tower at Illinois and First Streets.

The upper floors of Building #1 will be home to the corporate offices for ALE Solutions. The street-level will include storefronts for retail and restaurant businesses. The basement level of the building, which is now roofed over, will provide private parking for the building.

A new 110-space public parking deck will be constructed immediately east of Building #1. Excavation for the parking deck will continue when the weather warms. The deck will be completed this summer.
