Team Six: This Week - Intro to Property Ownership - AT GSA'S OFFICE

This Week:

CONTRARY to our schedule, we will be meeting at GSA's office this Thursday, November 17, 2011. Their office is located at 230 S. Dearborn, in Suite 3600 (on the 36th floor):

The entrance looks like this: You should enter on Dearborn (the North-South street) just North of Jackson (the East-West street). You will have to go through a metal detector for security, so don't bring any dangerous objects that you normally bring (like nail files, knives, etc). Maybe not the best day to try out your new goth jewelry, either. Take the first bank of elevators to the 36th floor and the receptionist will direct you to room 3640. Make sure you're there before 6 pm! Closest 'L' Stops: Blue/Red Lines: Jackson (if you're coming from the Red line, go through the tunnel to go to the blue line but just keep exiting. The Blue line exit is right in front of the building, almost) Brown, Orange, Purple, Pink - Harold Washington Library or Adams/Wabash (it's about a block or two away) Does anyone take the Metra? Which station are you coming in at? None of them are super close, but not really more than 4-5 blocks away. In any case, we will be getting an introduction to Property Ownership from GSA (short for General Services Administration). Property ownership is pretty much the reason our industry exists. If people or companies didn't spend billions of dollars every year developing proptery (read: changing what's on a piece of land), we wouldn't have any buildings to build! I'm very interested to see what exactly it is that they do, myself (this is Maureen, by the way). Let’s recap our last meeting, November 10:

Team Six: Tomorrow is College Night!

This Week:

According to our schedule, we will be meeting at Lend Lease's office Thursday, November 10, 2011. Yes, we discussed something else last week, but we were wrong and we're going to stick to the schedule. Our office is located at 1 N. Wacker Drive, in Suite 850 (on the 8th floor):

The entrance looks like this: This week is COLLEGE NIGHT! You should have already turned in your survey either last week or via email. If you haven't, fill it out anyway and email it ahead of time or bring it with you tomorrow. It can help you start thinking about college even if you don't want to think too hard yet. Let’s recap our last meeting, November 3:

Team Six: Mystery = Solved

Next Week:

According to our schedule, we will be meeting at Thorton Tomasetti’s office Thursday, November 3, 2011. Their office is located at 330 N. Wabash Avenue, in Suite 1500 (on the 15th floor): The entrance looks like this: You will get an introduction to both Construction and Engineering. We have a fun engineering activity planned as well! Let’s recap our last meeting, October 27:

Team Six: First Meeting Tomorrow!

Team 6's first meeting will be tomorrow, October 27th, at Gensler's office located at 11 E. Madison Street, Suite 300 from 5:00-7:00pm. This is what the building looks like: The Gensler mentors will be giving a presentation to introduce you to architecture. Lots of you listed architecture as your main interest - here is your chance to see what it's all about! The last time we met was at orientation and mentors handed out orientation packets. If you lost yours, you can see the pdf here. It has our schedule for the year, a mentor roster and a handout with information about each firm that the Team Six mentors are a part of. I will be doing a trivia game this year via the blog. See if you can answer the question after the jump. (There may be prizes!)
