Rosemont, Ill. — McShane Construction Co. said Tuesday it has been awarded a three-story, 586-space parking structure project on behalf of developer Casto Lifestyle Properties.
The new construction assignment is located at Randhurst Village in Mount Prospect, Ill., a 100-acre, mixed-use redevelopment project of the former Randhurst Mall that will feature retail, dining, entertainment and hospitality components.
