Pilsen Olympic Center
Chicago, Illinois, USA
JGMA was asked by their client to develop a master plan for a new Olympic Center located in the surrounding site of their career academy. The new Olympic Center encompasses the block with a series of facilities creating a courtyard stadium for soccer and softball to be played.
The development will include a community recreation center with basketball courts, a running track, a parking garage, and a gymnasium space. Additionally, a large portion of the project is dedicated to community based retail space. The entire complex is tied together with a large outdoor running track with breakout exterior courtyard spaces elevated above grade. This also creates a canopy for the stadium seating below and an opportunity to view sporting events from above.
The Pilsen Olympic Center affords the career academy and the surrounding community an opportunity to connect and grow through health, exercise, and education.
