A LOOK INSIDE THE UPTOWN THEATRE

A LOOK INSIDE THE UPTOWN THEATRE

Booth Hansen is currently working with developers on the renovation of the historic Uptown Theatre at Broadway and Lawrence. The theater is a spectacular example of the work of architects Rapp and Rapp.
A new music video by Regina Spektor is set in the Uptown Theatre — its music and dance reflect the elegance of the space which has been dormant since 1981. We look forward to bringing this amazing structure back to life.

CHICAGO TRIBUNE FEATURES FARM ON OGDEN

The Chicago Tribune featured the Booth Hansen designed Farm on Ogden in an article entitled Five urban farming projects in Chicago to watch in 2017.
Farm on Ogden (located at 3555 W. Ogden Avenue) is a new $3.5 million urban farm conceived by the Lawndale Christian Health Center and Windy City Harvest (which is the Chicago Botanic Garden’s urban farming program). The Farm will allow Windy City Harvest to increase overall production and double its training capacity – Windy City Harvest currently grows more than 100,000 pounds of produce a year in addition to training low-income people of color how to farm. The 30,000 square foot facility will house a 50,000 gallon aquaponics system, greenhouse, store that sells the farmed produce, and a commercial kitchen for hosting cooking classes.

Congratulations to our team and friends at Restoration Hardware for winning the Chicago Landmark Award for Preservation Excellence for The Three Arts Club!

The original 1914 Holabird and Roche building was renovated as Restoration Hardware’s new gallery with the atrium space brought back to life as a restaurant with a stunning glass roof structure. Masonry repairs and restoration of historic windows and ground-floor spaces revitalized the Byzantine-inspired design that is integral to the Gold Coast neighborhood.
The Chicago Department of Planning and Development states that “the lines of people along the streets are a testament of success of the rehabilitation.”
