A City of Chicago landmark and fixture on the National Register of Historic Places, the Post Office is a one- of-a-kind building. When it was purchased in 2016 after 20 years of neglect, Gensler Chicago led its respectful restoration and seamless repositioning into a next-generation office building with world-class tenant amenities. In this presentation, Gensler Regional Managing Principal Grant Uhlir will discuss the process of reinvigorating the landmark building into a relevant space for today’s Chicagoans. This program will be live-streamed via Zoom. Click here to register.
