301 Congress continues to operate during normal business hours with certain operational adjustments made to ensure a safe environment for tenants and visitors.
Our Response to the Pandemic
Hand sanitizing stations at every entrance to the building, elevator lobby on the first floor, and the fitness and conference centers.
Signage throughout all common areas of the building reminding you that masks and 6 feet of physical distancing continue to be strongly encouraged.
Social Distancing Service with traffic monitoring for all eight elevators servicing the tower. Thyssenkrupp Social Distancing Software is designed to help balance building congestion risk with physical distancing. In accordance with CDC guidance, we have limited each elevator cab to four passengers per destination. For this limit to be enforced, it is crucial that each passenger choose a destination regardless of if the destination has already been chosen by another waiting passenger. Without doing so, the software cannot work in practice to limit the number of passengers per destination.
301 Congress employs two full-time Day Porters that work continuously throughout the day to disinfect high touch points in all common areas of the building. In addition to day porter service, the building is thoroughly cleaned and disinfected overnight Monday through Friday. Our janitorial team uses Virex II 256, a hospital grade cleaner providing broad spectrum disinfection. Virex II 256 is registered under EPA's emerging viral pathogen program for use against SARS-CoV-2, the coronavirus that causes COVID-19, as well as HIV-1, Influenza A, Rotavirus, MRSE.

All entrances to the building will remain open during normal business hours.
