1K Fulton serves as the headquarters of Google Chicago and international headquarters of bicycle-component manufacturer SRAM International Corp. The design intent was to respect the neighborhood context and to adaptively reuse and preserve original details of the Fulton Market Cold Storage Facility. Developer Sterling Bay adaptively reused an existing 10-story industrial building from the 1920s, which was de-iced and the concrete loft structure re-clad with a new masonry façade accented by terra cotta banding.

A new six-story annex was built as well, configuring an open-air entry plaza where the two structures meet. Original artifacts including brick, wood from the rooftop water tower and metal flywheels were salvaged and incorporated throughout the project.

As you explore Chicago during OHC, please wear a face covering, maintain at least six feet of distance from others and do not attempt to enter any buildings.
