Description

Bubbly, also known as the Chicago Sustainable Manufacturing Center, is located in a former Lowe Brothers paint warehouse. Through a renovation project which involved strategic salvage and reuse of materials and waste, barter with local suppliers, and volunteer efforts, the space was transformed by Bubbly Dynamics LLC into a small business light-industrial business incubator. This contributing building to the Original East Historic District of the Central Manufacturing District now houses a collaborative community of over 15 fabricators and artists. The principles explored and implemented during this renovation guided the redevelopment approach for Bubbly Dynamics’ second building, The Plant.
