Ambitious Restoration Leads to Rebirth of a Chicago Landmark

How do you replicate historic windows when little documentary evidence exists? In the case of the Belden-Stratford, originally known as “one of Chicago’s most distinctive hotels,” the team uncovered the building’s secrets one step at a time.
The Belden-Stratford, a 16-story landmarked building offering its residents sweeping views of the Chicago skyline, Navy Pier and Lake Michigan, was undergoing a complete historic restoration.

Discover how patience, diligence and a good bit of detective work led to a striking success.
