City Winery Chicago
1200 W. Randolph St.
Adaptive Re-Use | West Loop
Their design team built a rendering specific to a future restaurant / entertainment facility. “Having a visual representation of its redevelopment potential was critical in order to draw attention from the Chicago restaurant community.” said Michael Nelson, SIOR, a Principal at NelsonHill.
The Right Buyer
At NelsonHill, the value proposition is to create maximum value from every real estate transaction, for clients. Their service-driven model procures prospects and converts them into buyers through a committed process of negotiation and detailed communication, not only with the broker involved but also with both sets
of legal counsel, bankers, environmental consultants and appraisers.
Through the NelsonHill network of service providers, Summit Design + Build, was selected as the construction arm of the redevelopment project. With their expertise, more than 75% of the existing structure was retained, and the property re-positioned for years to come.
The City Winery project is an excellent example of in-city adaptive reuse success: a 28,000 square foot, antiquated food distribution warehouse converted into a new, fully-functional urban winery, with a 400-capacity entertainment venue and restaurant.
The West Loop
The West Loop of Chicago, positioned directly West of Downtown and centered around Randolph Street, has quickly been transformed from a warehouse district to a thriving work/play community of retail, dining and wholesale space. Now home to award-winning restaurants like Girl & the Goat, NellcÔte, Market and Moto Restaurant, the CTA has provided easier access by installing a Green-Line Morgan Station, and private developers capitalizing on residential development opportunities. The new City Winery is positioned for success, with room to grow.
