The building loading dock is located on the north side of the building on Lower Wacker Drive and can only be accessed from the Lower Wacker Drive east-bound service lane.
Our freight elevator is located along the west corridor of the building and is accessible at the basement level just south of the loading dock entrance. The freight elevator is manually operated by a Freight Operator, which is provided by the Property Management Office.
Regular Business Hours (8:00 a.m. to 4:15 p.m., Monday through Friday except for holidays)
In order to ensure prompt and efficient delivery service to all building tenants, users of the loading dock are permitted to occupy dock space for no longer than 30 minutes during normal operating hours. Once loading or unloading is complete, the vehicle must leave the dock area. Parking is not permitted at the loading dock. Use of the freight elevator is limited to 20 minutes per delivery (generally no more than two freight trips).
The Property Management Office requires deliveries of large items that require the use of the freight elevator for more than 20 minutes be scheduled after-hours. This policy also applies to tenant moves.
The freight elevator may be reserved by tenants on a first-come, first-serve basis weekdays before 7:00 a.m. and after 5:00 p.m., as well as any time on weekends. Please contact the Property Management Office at (312) 726-4260 or email Alex Maher at firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve the freight elevator. Please submit freight elevator reservation requests to the Property Management Office no later than 48 hours prior to the reservation date.
A work order request will be generated by the Property Management Office for after-hours freight elevator requests. An hourly charge will apply to cover reimbursement of freight operator costs.
