WIN: Howard Building Renovation Receives Preservation Award

“Developer Sterling Bay’s rehabilitation of the Howard Building in Fulton Market has earned a preservation award.

“On Monday, the Commission on Chicago Landmarks recognized 10 projects from across the city for excellence in preservation. The rehab of the Howard Building at 1000 W. Randolph St. for retail was among the projects recognized for “extraordinary design, craftsmanship and community impact.”

“The two-story building was built by the architectural firm of Leicho & Esser in 1923 to attract merchants displaced from South Water Market.

“Sterling Bay rehabilitated the vacant building with facade restoration and masonry cleaning. Other work included new windows, a revamp of the vacant storefronts and new mechanical systems.

“The Howard Building is an important anchor to the historic Randolph corridor and its rehabilitation serves as a gold standard for the rest of the district,” according to the Department of Planning and Development.” (Pena, 10/29/19)

“As one of Fulton Market’s most historic retail buildings, our goal in restoring the The Howard Building was always to honor and its original design and use, while also creating a modern appeal that would attract new users and continue its legacy as an important community anchor,” said Keating Crown, Managing Principal at Sterling Bay. “We’re honored that our team’s restoration of this beautiful landmark has been recognized for excellence and that the structural and façade work we completed has resulted in bringing in new tenants that add value to the neighborhood.” (Crown, Sterling Bay)
