Congress Theater's $65M Overhaul Underway But Reopening Pushed Back To 2019

"It's a really, really complicated project," said project architect Mary Ward, who led a press tour of the theater at 2135 N. Milwaukee Ave. Saturday morning as part of Open House Chicago, an annual festival that invites the public to tour architectural gems throughout the city.

    Congress Theater's $65M Overhaul Underway But Reopening Pushed Back To 2019
    LOGAN SQUARE - To passersby, the Congress Theater looks the same as it did in 2015, when developer Michael Moyer first announced his plans to redevelop the notoriously rundown concert venue. The retail storefronts are still boarded up, the scaffolding hasn't moved and rarely are workers ever seen on the premises.
