The new JL Tower is a Class “A” signature-type building and one the public will identify with JL Properties and the surrounding development. The office building features a large dramatic curtain wall of glazing that transfers into metal screens as it pierces the sky. The glass curtain wall wraps around and abuts a facade of stone panels with punched windows on all four sides of the building. Entry canopies will protect pedestrians from rain and snow. An efficient floor layout with a braced column core maximizes flexibility for tenant layout and eliminates structural bracing at the perimeter.

This fourteen story building is situated on approximately seven acres with 280,000 gross sq ft. The building frame is structural steel with a composite concrete floor system. Spray fireproofing protects the structure. The exterior wall system consists of an aluminum curtain wall system and stone panels.
