Marshall’s Landing Atop the “Grand Stair” Now Open

J.C. Anderson, Inc. has completed the much anticipated Marshall’s Landing, a 12,000 square foot café and bar concept operated by DMK Restaurants within Chicago’s Merchandise Mart. Named for the Mart’s founder, Marshall Field, the space sits at the top of the building’s “grand stair” and is open daily from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.

“It was a pleasure to work with DMK, A + I Architecture and VDTA on this exciting project,” said Anthony Douglas, project executive for J.C. Anderson, Inc. “The vision was years in the making and we’re proud to have been selected to execute a finished product which not only reflects the history of the building and Chicago, but also showcases a welcoming atmosphere of rich woods and brass, but also a precision throughout the detailed finishes.”

The 12,000 square foot café and bar features a grand hall lounge with open tables conducive to meetings, leather and velvet banquet seating along the north windows with expansive views of the Chicago River, and a private dining facility with a large rolling door made of walnut and blackened steel. J.C. Anderson, Inc. also constructed a state-of-the-art kitchen with a beer cooler, prep holding cooler, a coffee service station and pastry counter, as well as a second kitchen on the lower-level for prep and storage.

Additional features of Marshall’s Landing include a 50-foot long tilted glass mirror surrounded by brass, a walnut and brass bar with 118 overhead light fixtures and extensive millwork, and usb/electric outlets available in the walnut laden communal seating area. J.C. Anderson, Inc. was also responsible for the extensive finishes throughout the space including dramatic light fixtures, brick veneer wall and linen wall coverings, terrazzo and ceramic flooring, and a substantial amount of intricate millwork.

The construction team for J.C. Anderson, Inc. was led by Project Executive Douglas and Project Superintendent Glenn Panfil. A + I Architecture out of New York and VDTA from Chicago provided the architectural services.
