The 0.8-acre Cascade Park not only improves access to Lake Michigan via sloping pathways that wind through terraced lawns, but it also features a new pedestrian and cyclist path to Lakeshore East Park in the center of the neighborhood.

When Taylor Johnson client Lendlease was drawing up plans for Cirrus and Cascade – its new condo and apartment towers in Lakeshore East developed in partnership with Magellan Development Group – the firm saw an opportunity to improve neighborhood connectivity with Cascade Park, a publicly accessible green space that provides a gradual transition to the adjacent lakefront. Seeing parallels between that project and the firm’s approach with Southbank, a 7-acre master plan in the South Loop that is also anchored by a communal park, the TJ team proposed a story on the use of parks as urban infill solutions to Buildings magazine. Our pitch resulted in a byline article from Ted Weldon, executive general manager of development for the Chicago office of Lendlease, who explained how the firm has used privately developed green space to serve the greater public good while aligning projects with its own ambitious sustainability targets.
