When the economy halted in 2008 so too did work on what was to be "Shangri-La." The 28-story concrete shell sat along one of the most visible stretches of the Chicago River. Gathering dust, it became anything but the paradise the original development team envisioned. Bringing high-rise expertise, in-depth analysis and a culture of collaborative planning, WSP USA helped OneEleven Wacker come alive at last, ensuring its place of prominence on the Chicago River.
