Brookfield Properties, LJC, and Clayco re-imagined and renovated one of Chicago’s most iconic buildings, the historic Marshall Field department store, and the current Macy’s flagship store in Chicago’s loop.
The Marshall Field’s brand is rooted deep in Chicago’s history; its flagship retail State Street building has been an iconic place to shop for patrons across the country for decades. This adaptive reuse project included a lower-level building infrastructure renovation, a new office entry, a lobby with 14 completely new high-speed elevators, and an office build-out of the iconic structure’s highest seven floors, topped off with incredible amenities.
Renovations in the lower levels enhanced aesthetics inside and out, including a grand entrance and exterior canopy at the new office space address of 24 East Washington, leading into the main lobby exclusive to tenants of the building’s new office floors. The lower-level design remains loyal to Marshall Field’s classic ornamental gold features while adding warm, modern finishes. The top floors, eight through fourteen, have been remediated from their historical condition and transformed into white space for office build-outs.
