INTRODUCING: Crushed By Giants

We are excited to bring Chicago another brewery & restaurant to the Magnificent Mile! Introducing Crushed By Giants, a taco-themed brewpub located at 600 N. Michigan Avenue in River North.

Macon worked with ARS Contracting and LaGrange Crane Service to safely hoist the stainless steel brewery equipment from the 4th-story roof. The equipment includes a 15-barrel brewhouse, six fermentation tanks, and six serving tanks.

Watch the video and see how we executed this daring feat!

No. 508 – Drone Video

Check out this great drone video of our progress at 508 West Diversey from our friends at Premier Steel Services. Since the time of this video, progress has continued at a rapid pace and the building has been topped off and the tower crane has come down. We are just about complete closing up the exterior and are going strong on the interior. Estimated completion in August!

No. 508 – Going Vertical!

After getting through Board of Underground and other City approvals, we are coming out of the ground and getting vertical!  The tower crane is busy placing steel and concrete panels on the 12-story, 53-unit apartment tower designed by Pappageorge Haymes located at 508 W. Diversey.
