CHICAGO — The Mill has plans to move its Chicago studio into the landmark 1KFulton building, located in the historic meatpacking neighborhood in the West Loop. The relocation will be completed by the end of 2016’s Q1.
The new Chicago studio is being transformed with a design that encompasses The Mill’s aesthetic, with integration and collaboration at its heart. The 1KFulton space will feature a new digital infrastructure, a second color suite, and expanded CG and design teams. Located at 1000 West Fulton Street (Suite 250), the location will also grow the company’s Mill+ arm - the creative studio that focuses on originating, developing and designing creative work.
“It is an incredible testament to our team in Chicago to have accomplished so much is just three years,” says The Mill’s CEO, Robin Shenfield. “The studio move to 1KFulton will allow us to continue to achieve the best creative work and attract the best talent in Chicago and throughout the Midwest.”
“Our growth is a direct result from demand from our local clients for all of our studio’s capabilities,” adds Jared Yeater, The Mill’s Chicago managing director. “Our new space is arranged over one floor and will allow us to develop a state-of-the-art studio that inspires creativity and collaboration for our clients and staff alike.”
Bruce Bolander Architects is providing the design for the new space and Centaur is handling the construction.
