The Chicago Metropolitan Agency for Planning (CMAP) moved their corporate offices into Chicago's redeveloped, historic Old Post Office building. The 47,000 sf space features an inviting lobby with a terrazzo enclosed reception desk and decoustic wood slated ceilings that greet clients as they enter the new fourth floor office. The space features executive suites, collaborative workstations, a town hall and a large cafe with a waterfall island and banquette seating. Conference rooms are equipped with Microsoft Teams enabled technology, allowing CMAP to interact with clients virtually with the swipe of a button. In addition, the corridor's historic elements were renewed with updated stone around the base boards, tile floors, and large doors to match the historical aesthetic throughout the building.
