Hollander Design Wins 2023 IL ASLA Award

11 Hoyt wins merit award for residential design

11 Hoyt is an important model for how even urban developments can play a part in restoring resources for pollinators by providing space where both nature and community can thrive.

11 Hoyt transforms its full-block site, formerly a parking garage, into an elevated green podium anchored by a residential tower. Visible from the street yet buffered from its activity, the podium’s 27,000SF landscape supports the innate human instinct to connect with nature and other living beings. A planting matrix focused on pollinators intentionally functions as a waystation for migrating birds and butterflies while encouraging neighbors to meet and interact among trees, gardens, and other amenities.

We were honored to work with Studio Gang, Hill West, Michaelis Boyd, McNamara Salvia, Cosentini, Pine & Swallow, Hines, Earthscape, and Tishman Speyer to bring this project to life.
