About the project

R2 Companies, known for their adaptive reuse projects, engaged MAPS for a suite of services.

This 140,000 square foot building is actually a group of several vintage buildings. The buildings are so old that the City of Chicago had no permit drawings on file (many of the permit drawings burned in a 1950s fire). Old permit drawings, which MAPS can usually obtain for its clients, are helpful to the design architects to know the construction type to which they design their program.
