Reliance Building/Hotel Burnham
Chicago, Illinois
Antunovich Associates collaborated with McCaffery Interests on the restoration and conversion of the historic Reliance Building into a 122-room boutique hote, The Hotel Burnham. The Reliance Building, designed by John Welborn Root and Charles B. Atwood of D.H. Burnham & Company, and constructed in 1895, is recognized as the precursor of the modern glass and steel high-rise building. The Reliance Building is a National Historic Landmark and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
The Reliance Building was meticulously restored in conformance with the Secretary of the Interior's Standards and Guidelines for Rehabilitating Historic Buildings. Phase One included the restoration of the terra-cotta exterior, the replacement of the historic cornice, and replacement of windows above the first floor. The second phase included reconstructing the ornate first floor storefront, rehabilitating the ornate first floor elevator lobby and stair, restoring the elevator lobby and corridors on four upper-level floors, and restoring the ornate stair that connects all upper levels of the building.
