Project Scope

Graycor completed renovations to the Oakbrook Center for its newest tenant – the Container Store. The project included exterior facade work and a 27,000 sq ft tenant build-out of the first floor which included metal panels, curtain wall system and all new exterior finishes. The project also included the addition of a vertical transportation package to access the 2nd level Vestibule and exterior entrance.

The project team utilized Building Information Modeling (BIM) coordination for ceiling work. Extensive coordination with the 2nd floor tenants throughout the project minimized impact to ongoing operations.

Currently, Graycor is building The Container Store’s first store in the state of Wisconsin. The new 23,000-sq-ft retail store will be located at the Mayfair Mall, the largest mall in the Milwaukee area.
