Description

This former billboard factory with a one-of-a-kind glass-enclosed atrium offers a unique industrial setting for weddings and private events. The atrium features a soaring half-arch roof (easily visible from the CTA Brown Line) that once allowed craftsmen to flip full-size billboards upright for painting. Two floors below, an expansive timber loft has been dressed up as a garage to showcase a priceless collection of vintage sports cars and neon signs.

Visitor Experience

Visitors can access all three levels via elevator or stairwell and are invited to explore the space on their own, with handouts available to explain the building's history.
