The Peshtigo is a contemporary 57-story residential tower with 358 condominiums being developed by Related Midwest. Designed for a site on the shores of Lake Michigan, yet central to both downtown and the Magnificent Mile, The Peshtigo features sweeping lake views, open floor plans with light-filled rooms and a palette of detailed finishes, with amenities such as an outdoor lap pool and spa.
The Peshtigo will utilize a building management system to control mechanical systems designed to maximize energy efficiency and improve air quality and comfort. Elements include variable-speed air supply and exhaust systems which operate according to demand, high-efficiency filters on the building intake systems and individual filters on residential HVAC fan coil units. Independent third-party commissioning of the mechanical systems assures the systems are performing as designed.
Featuring large areas of green roof systems with a variety of plants, The Peshtigo includes a 5,500-gallon storm water collection tank that retains rainwater to be used for all irrigation for landscaping, which conserves potable water and greatly reduces the load on the city sewers.
Other features designed for The Peshtigo have local and global benefits, including a light-colored roofing system that will help reduce the heat island effect that is a major urban issue, a conveniently-located bicycle storage room for over 450 bikes to encourage alternate forms of transportation and a recycling room on the ground floor to collect glass, plastic, paper and metal recyclables for the building.
