Casual Market/MMPI Announces Final Phase of Renovations at Chicago Merchandise Mart

CHICAGO–The International Casual Furniture & Accessories Market/Merchandise Mart Properties, Inc. (MMPI) today announced a redesign and renovation project for the 16th floor at the Chicago Merchandise Mart.

The redesign will incorporate new lighting designs, a fresh color palette for the walls and ceiling and new floor coverings. The light fixtures will provide a brighter area for showgoers to peruse permanent showrooms. In addition, a neutral color scheme has been chosen for the common areas, hallways, trim, and ceiling to complement the diverse range of hues seen in the adjacent showrooms. New floor coverings will adorn the corridors of the 16th floor, providing a modern, sleek style.

“We are reaffirming our commitment to the outdoor industry by providing new efforts of improvement for our clientele,” said John H. Brennen III, executive vice president, MMPI. “The entire renovation will correspond nicely with more than 45 high-end permanent casual showrooms, and will provide a more luxurious shopping and buying experience for our tenants’ customers.”

The Casual Market is scheduled for Sept. 17-20 at the Chicago Merchandise Mart.
