Myefski Architects, which has had its offices in the Chandler’s Building in downtown Evanston, announced today that it will move its headquarters to the Wrigley Building in downtown Chicago in February.

“Relocating to an architecturally significant building was crucial in our search for a new space,” John Myefski, president and principal of the firm, said. “We’re excited to engage with the energy of downtown from one of the most noteworthy buildings in Chicago.”

The Wrigley Building, at 400 N. Michigan Ave., was designed by Graham, Anderson, Probst & White. Completed in 1924, the building features French Renaissance and Spanish Colonial Revival-style architecture.

Myefski’s recent project in Evanston include the Taco Diablo building at 1026 Davis St., the expansion of The Merion senior living community at 1611 Chicago Ave. and a 47-unit planned development at 1620 Central St.

The firm also has completed projects throughout the midwest and as far away as Helsinki, Finland, and Riga, Latvia.

Myefski’s offices have been located on the 5th floor of the 630 Davis St. building for the past several years.
