American Dental Association Chicago, Illinois
The renovation of the Lower Level of the American Dental Association headquarters at 211 E. Chicago was undertaken to upgrade the image of the "basement" as a quality office environment and recapture under-utilized storage areas as leasable space. The ADA also wanted to develop their in-house duplicating and office service areas as retail amenity to building tenants. CRDA created lively and updated public corridor areas, a state-of-the-art printing facility, shipping / receiving center, employee lounge, and tenant storage areas. A 5,000 square foot leasable tenant area was recaptured, as well as 15,000 square feet of space chargeable to the ADA.
