The Saieh Hall for Economics is an adaptive reuse of 5757 South University Avenue that included the renovation and expansion of the former Chicago Theological Seminary building to house instructional and research programs.

The main building renovation involved reconfiguration and renovation of approximately 100,800 square feet, including repairs and upgrades to the building envelope, HVAC and electrical and voice/data systems, an added, ground-level entrance, and bringing the building infrastructure up to code for life safety and accessibility. Scope also included building out space for mechanical rooms and a large, tiered lecture hall. 

The research pavilion is a 48,900 square foot addition to the building’s north side to create a second large lecture hall, seminar rooms, and offices. This addition connects to two adjacent Woodlawn Avenue properties which were also renovated.
