View®, a leader in dynamic glass, has completed the installation of smart windows in four Chicago projects:
- A high-tech office building at 2017 Mendell
- Elevate luxury residences in Lincoln Park
- Sunset Ridge School in Chicago’s north suburbs, and the
- Glen Ellyn Police Department’s new home.
Chicago real estate leaders have leveraged View Dynamic Glass in their buildings for its health and wellness benefits, smart technology and energy savings.
“Our mission is to create delightful human environments for people whether they are at home, work or play,” said Rahul Bammi, Chief Business Officer of View, Inc.
“View is improving student performance, making office workers more productive, and enabling developers to lease their properties faster.”
View’s smart windows let in natural light and views, and enhance mental and physical well-being by significantly reducing headaches, eyestrain and drowsiness.
In addition, View’s windows reduce glare and unwanted heat, improving the energy efficiency of buildings by 20 percent.
“There’s no doubt View Dynamic Glass helped us stand out from other Chicago properties because occupants can fully enjoy the natural beauty of the area in comfort and feel a greater connection to the community,” said Daniel Slack, Principal, Baker Development.
“View helped us create an experience that gives a wow factor, and ultimately leases quicker and attracts premium tenants.”
