UIC completed schematic design work for an adaptive re-use of this historic church building into a multi-venue performing arts and concert center. The design calls for the restoration of the now abandoned structure to its original configuration, with subtle additions. The primary sanctuary space will be used as a concert hall capable of holding 1200 patrons and hosting national musical acts. The three story multi-function building will house a ground floor restaurant and a 400 seat intimate venue in the former two story meeting hall above.
