Congratulations to the University of Chicago for its stewardship of the Harper Theater and Herald Building in Hyde Park

The extensive rehabilitation project was recognized Saturday, October 26th, at the 2013 Richard H. Driehaus Preservation Awards, hosted by Landmarks Illinois.  As the Preservation Architect under the leadership of OKW, AltusWorks provided masonry expertise for the evaluation, design, and repair of the brick and terra cotta facades of the theater and the neighboring commercial building.    The rehabilitation is part of a comprehensive revitalization of the 53rd Street corridor led by the University of Chicago’s commercial real estate group.
