MAP Strategies has been working with Hudson Group, owner of the ubiquitous Hudson News stores at airports around the country, and IBI Group architects to manage the permitting and code compliance of dozens of new stores at O’Hare and Midway airports. The stores include a brand new FAO Schwarz toy store at Midway. Hudson’s new concept “Ink by Hudson”, which focuses on books, will also be coming in to the airports.

Exciting new project just completed as part of the new Chicago Midway airport revitalization.

Lamberto Smigliani, Architectural Department Manager at IBI Group, said, “The IBI-MAPS-Milhouse team worked together with Hudson to complete this project in record time. This new store will serve as the gateway to Midways’ Concourse A and will serve thousands of passengers each day. We were all glad to be part of the team and part of the revitalization of the airport.”

The latest renovated Hudson News store is now open at Midway. Enjoy the photos below, provided by Hudson Group.
