Korte & Luitjohan Contractors, Inc. was selected to provide Pre-Construction and Construction Management Services for a 5 story Class A professional office building located in Columbia, Illinois. The building is the first of multiple buildings planned for the 26-acre site. K&L worked with the Developer and the Architect on the exterior shell and interior core of the building and continues to provide the same services for the tenant build-out finishes as leases are executed.
The 60,000 SF building includes extensive use of glass and is accented by masonry and architectural metal panels. The windows will provide beautiful views of the Columbia bluffs landscape and Jefferson Barrack’s Bridge over the Mississippi River. The fifth floor features a large conference room which will be available for a wide range of events, that has access to a roof terrace enhancing the experience from the fifth floor.
The Developers chose the name 11 South, as a result of the location, 11 miles south of the Gateway Arch.
