After thirty years, new owners sought to breathe new life into the site. Its long, horizontal factory buildings with copious square footage presented tremendous potential for campus-style corporate use. In Chicago, companies requiring expansive space usually have two options: go vertical or depart for the suburbs. The Terminal is a new and desirable alternative.
After stabilizing the buildings, we identified a unique opportunity to appeal to Chicago’s burgeoning bioscience sector. Working within the parameters of the National Register of Historic Places, we embraced the buildings’ industrial underpinnings, retaining features like timber columns and oversized fire doors.
To offer maximum flexibility and complete space customization for large companies and startups alike, our design-build approach leveraged innovative, multi-tenant workspaces with sleek aesthetics and wide-open layouts. Today, The Terminal is a vibrant hub for innovation and a source of pride for the neighborhood.
