Assumption Catholic Church Priory

Assumption Catholic Church Priory

As part of the larger development of Illinois Street between Orleans and Franklin Streets in the River North neighborhood, MKB worked with The Servites religious community to design and coordinate a renovation and expansion of an existing Priory building. The project involved a complete renovation of the existing floors, a third floor renovatoin, and a redesigned public/private garden space. The lower level and first floor Parish offices and meeting spaces were also renovated. The Priory is now totally accessible for the senior Servite priests who will be living there. The residents, Parish, and the local River North community benefit from the enhanced public garden, which is a respite in a very dense part of the city.
