CHICAGO, November 13, 2017 – The Wirtz Realty Corporation, owner of 333 North Michigan, and MB
Real Estate (MBRE), the exclusive property management and leasing provider for 333 North Michigan,
announced today that the building received the Chicago Landmark Award for Preservation Excellence for
a $50 million renovation recently completed at the property. The honor is given annually at the
Preservation Excellence Awards by the Commission of Chicago Landmarks.

Staffed by the Historic Preservation Division of the City of Chicago’s Department of Planning and
Development, the Commission of Chicago Landmarks designates the Preservation Excellence Awards to
Chicago Landmark buildings, properties within the Chicago Landmark Districts, and other projects that
promote the city’s architectural history. The awards recognize the critical role property owners,
businesses, and citizens play in the preservation of Chicago’s historic and cultural heritage.
Designed by renowned architect Holabird & Root in 1928, 333 North Michigan is considered o

ne of the
city’s most prominent examples of Art-Deco style skyscrapers and was named a Chicago Landmark in
1997. In 2014, the building underwent a major rehabilitation that included masonry repairs, recreation of
the original main entry and storefront replacement, and recladding of the existing rooftop addition.
Interior work included restoration of the historic main lobby, elevator modernization and upgrades to the
building’s mechanical, electrical, and plumbing systems, as well as the construction of a full floor amenity
suite that includes a tenant lounge, conference rooms, fitness centers, and fully-furnished, newly-built
spec suites.

“333 North Michigan’s rehabilitation was essential so that the building can continue to provide tenants
an outstanding experience and offer modern perks, such as our new tenant amenity floor and upgraded
spec suites,” said MBRE vice president and general manager of 333 North Michigan, John Wegforth.
“However, ownership and our property management team worked diligently to ensure that the building’s
historic features that make 333 North Michigan a Chicago Landmark were kept intact and effectively

Constructed in 1928, 333 North Michigan is located at the intersection of Wacker and Michigan Avenue.
The building overlooks Lake Michigan, the Chicago River, and Michigan Avenue, and is home to the
Chicago Blackhawks flagship store. 333 North Michigan is LEED Silver certified and designated as both a
Chicago Landmark by the City of Chicago and National Landmark by the National Park Service.
