Chicago, Illinois


At Ella Flagg Young, Fox and Fox Architects’ scope of work focused on the evaluation and repair of the masonry façade, including rebuilding parapet and gable walls and tuckpointing. As part of the $5,000,000.00 renovation project, the flat roofs were replaced at the first and third floors and energy efficient insulated glass windows with low “e” glass were installed on all façades of the building. Interior remodeling consisted of new soffits installed at new window openings and interior plaster repairs at the first, second and third floors damaged by water infiltration from the roof.
