McHugh Construction Awakens Ramova Theater After Decades Of Sitting Empty

November 23, 2021

Chicago city officials, developers, community members and leaders from Taylor Johnson client McHugh Construction recently gathered to celebrate the start of the Ramova Theater renovation project in Chicago’s Bridgeport neighborhood. To ensure the event took center stage with the media, team TJ implemented a two-pronged approach to announce McHugh’s role as general contractor. First, we invited reporters to attend the event and tour the long-vacant theater. Immediately following the celebration, we distributed photos from the event along with details about the project, which will include not only restoring the theater, but also building out adjacent space for a new brewery and restaurant. Dozens of outlets covered the story, including Bisnow ChicagoBlock Club ChicagoBuilding Design + ConstructionChicago Architecture BlogChicago Business JournalHeartland Real Estate BusinessREBusinessOnlineRetail & Restaurant Facility BusinessUrbanize Chicago and WGN Radio 720.  Read more in today’s TJ TALK.
