JT Magen, a national construction firm, has completed the 150,000-square-foot, two-story retail space for Wayfair at Edens Plaza in the Chicago suburb of Wilmette. Wayfair took over the anchor space formerly occupied by the Carson Pirie Scott department store.

JT Magen carried out a full gut renovation of the existing building, providing new facades, roof, utility systems and services, vertical transportation, and all internal finishes. The project also included an exterior-only expansion of 110,000 square feet so as to include a plaza, new parking lot, landscaping, and storm detention center.

JT Magen served as construction manager for the project, overseeing all aspects from budgeting to materials procurement. The firm also spearheaded the structural design for the base building requirements and those of the storefront.

“We enjoyed working closely with the Wayfair team and a crew of skilled designers and subcontractors to create a strong, high-quality retail experience for Wayfair and the residents of the Greater Chicago area,” said Colum Quirke, a project manager at JT Magen.
