OKW was engaged by Tucker Development to create a mixed-use building in the heart of the Historic Fulton Market District. Ranging in height from two to four stories, we connected 11 existing buildings to accommodate retail and office uses. The design vision centered around enhancing the pedestrian experience and creating complementary spaces in support of the changing retail and office environment of the West Loop.
