Green Living - Solstice on the Park, Chicago

One of the newest developments planned for the Hyde Park area and one of the most interesting additions to the Chicago skyline, is Solstice on the Park, a 26-story residential tower, offering 145 apartment units.

This unique glass and steel tower is literally shaped by solar access and will become one of Chicago’s greener residential buildings and the largest new condominium development in Hyde Park in more than 15 years.

The surface of Solstice on the Park has an optimum angle for 41.5 degrees north, that maximizes passive solar warming potential during the winter while keeping the sun out during the summer thus reducing cooling needs.
The completion of the project is planned for late 2010.
