De Nobili Residence Hall Loyola University

Chicago, Illinois

  • The project is approximately 0.75 acres and is located at the southwest corner of N. Sheridan Road and N. Kenmore Avenue, in Chicago.

  • The existing site consists of surface parking lot and green area.  Improvements to the site included the construction of a five story residence hall.

  • Both rate and volume control for stormwater management was required by the City of Chicago. Since nearly half the site consisted of pervious area, the reduction of stormwater volume leaving the site was reduced thru the use of a green roof and also infiltration wells and planted bioinfiltration areas on site.  Detention is provided to control the rate of stormwater discharge from the site using underground vault system.

  • The project is seeking LEED Silver or Gold certification.
