G&R Adds Major Renovation At Historic Old Chicago Post Office To Project Portfolio.

The Old Chicago Main Post Office building has been through a lot. Built in 1921, expanded in 1932, and vacated in 1997, the building has remained vacant despite numerous attempts at renovation and redevelopment. It’s a large and spacious building, listed on the National Register of Historic Places and featured in multiple Hollywood blockbusters, yet for nineteen years efforts to utilize the vacated space kept falling through.

Industry Veteran, Dave Flint talks about why he specified G&R during his career

“…You don’t always have that luxury [of planning] when you work in [the] schools–because somebody runs a cart through the back wall of an elevator because they didn’t know how to load it to start with, as an example. So, you rely on people that you do business with externally to help you out. As I said earlier, G&R has always done that…it’s been good.”
