When the original plans for a 58-story residential tower and connecting 20-story hotel at River East Center exceeded the client's delivery and budget expectations, project architects DeStefano & Partners developed an innovative solution. By replacing the proposed precast elements with nearly 200,000 square feet of Reynobond, they reduced costs and accelerated the delivery schedule dramatically while improving the project's design appearance.
 
The alteration in fabrication was achieved by encapsulating stud walls with a metal skin that spanned from floor to floor. Fluted panels were closed off and engineered to mimic a variety of precast features. Additionally, Reynobond was formed to mimic louvers on the facade. Due to the cost competitiveness of Reynobond ACM coupled with the engineering and fabrication expertise of Alcoa Architectural Products' Master Fabricators, the complex was completed earlier than expected and with a significant cost savings over the original design. The finished project represents one of the largest Alcoa Architectural Products composite projects in North America.
