Reed Construction has completed a 22,000 square foot renovation for Garrett Brands LLC (Garrett Popcorn) at 401 N. Michigan Avenue in Chicago.
Founded in 1949, Garrett Popcorn is a family-owned business and renowned Chicago attraction, where popcorn is handmade daily in old-fashioned copper kettles using only the highest-quality ingredients. Reed Construction was selected to complete the 22,000 square foot buildout of Garrett Popcorn’s headquarters. The firm’s headquarters are currently located on the 17th floor of the Class A, Mag Mile building and are relocating to the 24th floor.
The construction on the 24th floor consisted of installing stone tile and wood slat ceilings throughout the elevator lobby, reception and café areas and features custom, reclaimed wood reception seating. Reed Construction also installed striped carpet that mimics the famous Garrett Popcorn tin, back painted glass at the elevator lobby and created open work areas with exposing ceiling and duct work.
Bryan Krueger was the principal involved and Steve Sandquist was the project manager for Reed Construction. Harley Ellis Devereaux provided the architectural services. JLL is serving as owner’s representative.
