Our Headquarters

Our headquarters are located in the historic Davoe Paint Factory built in 1898 and now known as the River West Plaza building in Chicago’s River West neighborhood. This turn of the century landmark maintains an easy charm and is filled with character, from Its private courtyard to its majestic skyline views.  Our offices occupy the south side of the 5th floor. We look forward to a visit from all our clients; we know you’ll enjoy a competitive game of pinball on one of our vintage machines.
