The real estate alumni clubs of Kellogg, Booth, DePaul, Illinois, Indiana, Marquette, Michigan, and Wisconsin invite you to tour Chicago's new entertainment venue, The Salt Shed!
The Morton Salt complex has been an iconic fixture in Chicago for nearly 100 years, it originally was designed to house local salt, packaging, and distribution operations. For years, operations remained steady, and the stability of the plant is what led to the iconic nature of the building. It didn't matter the decade you drove through Chicago; you knew you could count on the Morton Salt logo to greet you on your way into town. When operations ceased in 2015, the space became vacated, unleashing a world of possibilities for what the Morton Salt landmark could eventually become.
After the closure of the Morton Salt factory, the allure and undying curiosity in the iconic structure led 16 on Center (of Empty Bottle and Thalia Hall fame) with local developer Blue Star Properties, alongside R2 and Sky Deck, to combine forces in an effort to transform the Morton Salt building into a multi-purpose creative hub, with music as its beating heart.
Tickets will include a presentation from Blue Star Properties, as well as a networking event immediately following with beer/wine, and pizza from Pizza Friendly Pizza. We hope to see you there!
5:30 PM-8:00 PM: Cocktails, Networking
