T3 Goose Island is Transforming Chicago’s North Branch Corridor
The largest mass timber structure in the U.S. in the modern construction era is in the works in Chicago, and it’s all part of a bigger plan to transform the former industrial area known as Goose Island. The six-story T3 Goose Island is a wooden office building that’s renewable, carbon-storing, and has a low carbon footprint as compared to concrete or steel. It’s substantially lighter than concrete or steel, too.

“At its core, T3 addresses a growing cultural demand for sustainability, connectivity, and local authenticity,” says Steve Cavanaugh, the principal leading the design for DLR Group. “DLR Group’s collaboration with Hines on the development and design for T3 projects like Goose Island offers a response to a shift in the cultural landscape, where the wants and needs of contemporary, technology-rich workers are driving the way we think about workplace design.”
