HBRA Architects, 2016


Opened in 2016, Revival Food Hall puts a modern, upmarket spin on the ubiquitous food court. The 24,000-square-foot space is located on the ground floor of the National Building, a restoration of the 20-story Daniel Burnham-designed Commercial National Bank Building, previously headquarters of the Chicago Public Schools. The name ‘Revival’ itself is a nod to Burnham’s preferred Classical-Revival architectural style. Designed by Chicago-based HBRA Architects, the food hall hosts an all-local roster of fast-casual dining outposts, plus a coffee and cocktail bar and book and music shop. The renovation also created a 6th floor private event space with outdoor courtyard in the building's light well.
