Chandler’s Building Rehabilitation and Renovation

Open / Close

      Working with Davis Street Land Company and Heitman Properties, Holabird & Root completed the rehabilitation and renovation of the Chandler’s Building, a historic landmark located in Evanston, Illinois. Renovating the 35,600-s.f. historic building included cleaning and restoring the façade; converting the upper four floors to office space; adapting the first floor for retail; and upgrading the mechanical and electrical systems to meet today’s standards.

      The façade was originally designed to resemble the campus architecture of Northwestern University so the restoration was faithful to the key historic façade elements including the Tudor-style windows and decorative masonry work on the fifth story.
