  • This project included selective demolition of the existing Sears anchor building and complete demolition of the Sears Tire & Battery building. After demolition, the former Sears building was expanded and a new 120,000-square-foot LifeTime Fitness building was constructed in existing parking lot.

  • Significant site plan modifications were made to the existing parking lot to accommodate the new building. V3 was able to provide a site plan that lost only 31 parking spaces, despite the addition of the new 40,000-square-foot building footprint to the existing parking lot.

  • During the feasibility phase, V3 worked closely with the local sanitary district to confirm that there was adequate capacity for the increased demands from LifeTime.

  • V3 coordinated with Nicor Gas for a gasmain relocation that was necessary for the new building.

  • V3 provided a strategic grading design so that much of the existing stone base could be reused and only a limited amount needed to be disposed of offsite.
