  • The teams design challenge was modifying the original turn of the century “Financial Architecture” into a unique and contemporary facade in a mid-century building addition.
  • Through the unobstructed corridor, guests now have direct access to both the banks services and the new multi-purpose global conference center.
  • Here Northern Trust will host both client meetings and social events for some of the city’s top charities and business organizations.
  • State of the art audiovisual technology was integrated into every space. Here Christie MicroTiles digital displays are featured.
  • Skyfold retractable walls grant the conference center flexibility by dividing larger rooms into smaller meeting spaces, should the need arise.
  • The conference center can be easily be transitioned from open to private.
