The Clayton is a 14,000 square foot cigar retail space on the first floor and private, members-only cigar club on floors two, three and the basement. The building is located at the corner of Milwaukee and Canal Street in downtown Chicago. Construction included the renovation of all four floors, the installation of four glass-enclosed humidors as well as recertification of an elevator and dumbwaiter. ICI installed new electrical and mechanical systems and created a new ADA compliant entry. The project required modification of the existing wood structural systems in order to support the mechanical equipment and ICI partnered with the design team and engineers to maintain the desired look while achieving the necessary modifications.
Due to its placement on a tight city site, materials were craned into the building through upper level windows. The space is finished in high-end materials such as marble, simulated reclaimed wood flooring, tile and light fixtures with a dimming package.
