McDonalds Corporate Headquarters
Oak Brook, Illinois
The master plan for McDonald’s Office Campus includes Corporate Offices, Hamburger University, a Lodge, a Research and Development Center, and underground parking on an 81-acre wooded site in Oak Brook, Illinois. Design and construction of the 1.15 million square foot headquarters campus was planned in four phases. The landscaped site was carefully sculpted to create two retention lakes which accommodate essential flood plain storage while providing an important visual amenity. Joe Antunovich was the project architect for the campus for twelve years while a principal at Lohan Associates.

The Lodge and Hamburger University provide state-of-the-art classroom, meeting, laboratory, guestroom and dining facilities for students who attend from all over the world. These amenities are also used extensively by McDonald’s corporate staff. A key ingredient of the Office Campus is the extensive athletic and recreation facilities that are available to the entire McDonald’s family. The athletic facilities are highlighted by a 25-yard, six-lane indoor swimming pool constructed adjacent to the Lodge. This facility is surrounded by an oak forest and contains extensive deck areas for recreation and entertainment.

The corporate offices contain in excess of 350,000 square feet located on three levels within this bucolic site. The building has been carefully sited between the large existing oaks on the property with views extending deep into the surrounding woods. The delicate environment was further preserved by locating all required parking in a three-level structure located below the office building. These futuristic planning ideals contributed to the building recently receiving a Platinum LEED Certification from the Green Building Council.
