JT Magen Completes Construction of Cartier’s New Chicago Store

JT Magen has successfully completed the construction of a new two-story retail boutique for luxury brand Cartier at 15 Oak Street, Chicago. The project, managed from start to finish by JT Magen, involved detailed planning, material procurement, subcontractor management, and final project handover.

The new Cartier boutique boasts several unique architectural and design elements, including a custom white oak radius staircase with curved steel stringers and textured glass, a bespoke internal elevator cab, and luxurious plaster and gold-leaf finishes. These features seamlessly blend to create an immersive and elegant shopping experience.

Additionally, JT Magen oversaw the transformation of the storefront’s façade, which includes radius glass and custom imported travertine on an aluminum honeycomb structure. This complex design required innovative structural solutions to support the second-story façade and ensure precise installation.

JT Magen collaborated closely with Atmosphere Design Group, Henderson Engineering, and Turner Townsend to bring this sophisticated retail space to life. The completion of this project highlights JT Magen’s extensive experience and expertise in the retail construction sector, having previously worked with other high-end brands such as Hermes, Gucci, and Nike.
