Marshall Fields, Evanston

The landmark, art deco building, designed by Graham, Anderson Probst & White Architects of Chicago, was completed in 1929 and survived both the depression and the WW II. The store is a smaller replica of the famous Marshall Field’s State Street store in Chicago and a twin of the store in Oak Park. It was one of the first two Marshall Field’s department stores located outside the Loop the other being in Oak Park. Many of the original working drawings have been used during the current and previous updates to the building. The store closed in 1987, and the building was turned into commercial spaces on the first floor and loft apartments on the upper four floors.
