Another Look at Arc at Old Colony

As referenced in our portfolio, BTLA was the exterior wall restoration architect team member for the adaptive re-use of the Old Colony Building conversion to student housing. Our work on the building was featured in the new issue of Chicagoland Buildings & Environments.

The landmark 17-story steel frame building, originally designed by famed architects Holabird and Roche, was among the tallest buildings in Chicago at the time of its construction in 1894. The $58 million renovation was guided and executed by Chicago-based Pappageorge Haymes Partners. You can learn more about this amazing project here.
