Project Overview

To create the revolutionary new space, elements of the underutilized former Skyline Stage on Navy Pier were repurposed, transforming it into a fully enclosed, indoor theater. The new, 33,000 square-foot expansion connects through a spectacular, two-level glass lobby to CST’s existing building. Significantly reducing energy costs for the Theater, the two-story lobby curtain wall was fabricated with 3,200 square feet of electrochromic SageGlass®, which adjusts the windows’ level of opacity depending upon the level of sunlight (akin to transition lenses used in eyeglasses). When the glass is at its most opaque, the Theater’s curved façade is virtually mirror-like — reflecting the stunning views of the Chicago skyline and lakefront.
