Status Update: The Gage Group


The Gage Group (18 South Michigan Avenue) is a set of three office buildings designed by Holabird & Roche and Louis Sullivan in 1900 in the heart of Michigan Avenue’s architectural cliff wall.  It has been most notable lately because of The Gage restaurant, which is good enough for portly pork and poultry poet Phil Vettel and therefore good enough for you.

The owners recently undertook the renovation of the space next door, and have done an impressive job restoring it to what looks like an authentic 1900’s look.  Hopefully it doesn’t remain vacant very long.
