Binny’s Beverage Depot: Ivanhoe Castle, Chicago

Project Summary:

A true icon in the City, this castle like building once housed a speakeasy during Prohibition days.  This Project included converting a former theater and adjacent outdoor central garden area into one, giant interior retail space, with a new reinforced concrete floor over the incredible Catacombs area.  A full conversion of every inch of interior space was required to transform the three separate spaces into a large showpiece of a store.  Virtually every aspect of the existing spaces was modified or newly built, extensive in scope.  What emerged as the final product, completed on time and on budget, is worth the trip to see.
