JD Sports

Chicago, Illinois

Executive architect services for a 16,000 SF, two-story flagship store on State Street in the famous Chicago Loop district. The project included a full interior fit-out and façade enhancements. Key features of the project included digital portal walls at entryways, as well as a two-floor sneaker “chute” allowing team members to quickly request and receive product from the stock room to the sales floor.

Ware Malcomb’s local Chicago office ensured the project adhered to the specific guidelines established for State Street by the Chicago Loop Alliance, a special authority in the area. The core team worked with JD Sports’ design team to translate their vision and ensure the design details worked with the overall JD Sports footprint. Ware Malcomb has worked with JD Sports’ UK-based design and U.S.-based execution team on several projects throughout the United States.
