Creating a mixed-use environment as iconic as its neighbor, Wrigley Field

The design of 1101 West Waveland and The Park at Gallagher Way wasn’t created just for players and fans of the game, but for the community at large. The six-story office building is placed adjacent to the stadium, framing a vibrant space for an outdoor park and public center. Its goal? Support live concerts, film screenings, outdoor markets, and Cubs game-day celebrations.

The new office building houses three floors of workspace—for the Cubs front-office management and baseball operations—and two floors of retail. The retail space features a flagship Cubs memorabilia store, Starbucks Reserve, and a tavern with a ground-level and second-floor outdoor terrace. The park serves as an energetic hive for interaction in its urban Chicago core and as a green roof for the Cubs new underground clubhouse.

Completed to coincide with the 2017 MLB season start, 1101 West Waveland totals over 150,000 square feet and serves as a backdrop to the Park at Wrigley’s 39,000 square feet of outdoor entertainment and recreational space. At Wrigley Field, we’ve created a mixed-use entertainment district that comes alive for over 80 home games, but also switches on the surrounding neighborhood for the other 285 days a year.
