Renovation and Restoration
South Michigan Avenue Commercial Properties
Windy City Real Estate (WCRE) is strategically purchasing key commercial properties on South Michigan Avenue including three contributing structures within the Motor Row Historic District, a local historic district. WCRE has an eye on the transformation of this area as the City invests hundreds of millions of dollars in a new stadium for DePaul University, new hotels for McCormick Place and the expansion of mass transit service by constructing the new CTA Cermak Green Line station.
WCRE sought out AltusWorks as their architect due to our proven track record of assisting owners and developers with the unique challenges of renovating and adapting existing and historic structures in the City of Chicago. The automobile industry oriented buildings constructed during the building boom of 1905-1915 will be adapted to house office, retail, restaurants and potentially a small performance theater.
