Calamos Investments

Creating a workplace aesthetic that is classic, timeless, modern, and refined.

LJC is collaborating with Calamos Investments to create an iconic workplace for their new downtown Chicago location in the top two floors at Fulton East, a 12-story, 90,000 SF office and retail building designed by LJC built by Clayco. Calamos selected this address because it’s the nation’s first office building designed to deliver health-focused operating solutions for a post-COVID-19 business environment and attract employees who want to work in the hot Fulton Market area.

The goal of the interior architectural expression is to create an aesthetic that is a dialogue between classic, timeless materiality and modern, refined architectural form. The 12th-floor penthouse features a hospitality space, broadcast studio, executive meeting space, and the 11th-floor houses wealth management and trading groups. 

The new location will be an addition to the firm’s headquarters campus in Naperville. It will deepen the firm’s ties to the city, broaden access to potential business partners and clients, and diversify its Chicago-based footprint. 

The project is scheduled for completion in Fall 2022.
