Pythian Market, the highly anticipated urban food collective located on the building’s first floor, has served as a thriving, community-driven food mecca with a focus on independent businesses since its grand opening in May 2018. The 14 independent vendors range from established local brands with a loyal following to up-and-coming new concepts with unique and creative fare; all with an eye toward turning out high-quality, fresh food in a relaxed, communal setting. Local craftsman Matthew Holdren, who’s been featured on CNBC’s The Deed, transformed the original Pythian Jazz Garden’s old dance floors into a beautiful collection of dining surfaces for the high-tops, banquettes and communal tables, all set against polished concrete floors and exposed brick walls.

The historic renovation of the 10-story, mixed-use Pythian Building at 234 Loyola Avenue consisted of 69 apartments, a street-level foodservice operation, shared working space for small businesses and nonprofits, and healthcare offices. The full scope of work for the project included selective demolition and abatement; exterior façade repairs with historical masonry and cast stone; historic railing repair and restoration; waterproofing and roofing; replication of historic windows and curtain wall; traditional plaster treatment and repairs; modern interior finishes (drywall, flooring, etc.); new elevators; and all associated mechanical, electrical and plumbing systems.

In 20 years, I’ve never worked with a better development team than the one on this project, and a large part of that springs from the attitude and expectations of the collaborators. I am so grateful to Landis for the inspiring spirit of camaraderie and high level of competence that their team brought to work each and every day.

A successful project is the result of the combination of an enlightened owner, a talented architect and an engaged contractor, and the Pythian had all three. GCE and studioWTA worked closely with Landis Construction, the project’s contractor, to achieve great results. One of best development teams I’ve ever worked with.”
