Canal Station is a monolithic office building located in Chicago’s Southwest Loop neighborhood. Last year, my team was tasked with developing a marketing campaign to announce its redevelopment by the team responsible for some of the city’s biggest projects in recent memory.

This music festival-inspired campaign took the market by surprise with its unapologetic aesthetic and unorthodox delivery of the building’s key selling points.
