Part of the Historic Evanston Railyards Complex, the 28 bay, 63,000 square foot functioning Roundhouse is one of only a few remaining in the country.
In this first phase of work, Section One was transformed into a meeting and events space to support and expand the capabilities of the Machine Shop to provide a fuller compliment of facilities relative to meetings, conferences, and large events. The space includes an upper mezzanine area accessible via elevator or stairs.
In the next phase of work Sections Two, Three and Four will be restored and renovated as a civic center, housing city offices, the police department, planning, engineering, etc. Masterplanning is currently in progress.
