Get Directions


In the early 20th century, Chicago was the Midwest hub of manufacturing and retail. Chi Town was also home to the world's largest rail hub, as well as one of the largest shipping ports. With a robust economy, commercial space was in high demand. The Chicago skyline continued to grow rapidly and Sullivanesque-style architecture was celebrated.

Today, these early 20th century buildings are attracting new tenants: creative companies looking for inspiring offices, families desiring loft-style apartments, hospitality firms seeking historic space for hotels. One might say, new is out and old is in!

What are the latest developments in adaptive reuse? Will demand for repurposed space remain high? How do developers take a building from out-of-commission to hot commodity? What kind of amenities do modern tenants want in turn-of-the-century buildings?

Find out this and more at our Chicago Repositioning & Property Management this July, where Chicago's top developers and CRE executives will take an in-depth look into redevelopment, adaptive reuse and modern property management. As author Daniel Sack states, "We regret much of what we've built, we regret much of what we've torn down. But we've never regretted preserving anything."
