Traveling to Sargent & Lundy’s Chicago Headquarters
Our office is located at the Mid-Continental Plaza, 55 East Monroe (please note the “East” designation) in the heart of downtown Chicago – “the Loop.” The Palmer House Hilton hotel is directly across the street.
In the building lobby, look for the elevator bank for “Floors 21 – 27,” and come to our main reception area on the 24th floor. Our receptionist will contact whomever you are visiting.
The Mid-Continental Plaza building has an indoor public garage facility for 800 cars. Entrances to the garage are prominently marked on Monroe Street and Adams Street. Rate information is on the Garage website at http://www.55emonroegarage.com/parking_rates.html. There are also several other public parking lots in the immediate area with similar rates.
Sargent & Lundy’s headquarters are 18 miles southeast of O’Hare Airport (ORD) and 11 miles northeast of Midway Airport (MDW). Metered taxis, airport shuttle and public transportation (“L” train) are all viable options for reaching our office.
Airport Shuttle Service
GO Airport Express (1-888-2THEVAN) offers daily van shuttle service between O’Hare/Midway and downtown Chicago. Confirm with the driver if the van is going to the Palmer House Hilton (across the street from our office).
The “L” Train
The CTA’s rapid transit train (the “Loop Elevated”) is a popular way to get to our offices from O’Hare and Midway, especially during rush hour for those who have little luggage.
From O’Hare, the Blue Line is about a 40-minute train ride to the Monroe street station plus a 2.5-block walk to Sargent & Lundy (head east when leaving the station) On the return trip, ensure the train says “O’Hare” as not all Blue Line trains go there.
From Midway, the Orange Line trip to our office is about 35 minutes to the Adams stop. Walk down the stairs from the unloading platform, and our office is on the northeast corner (the tall silver building). Other train lines also run from Adams/Wabash, so ensure you get on an Orange Line train for the return trip.
