The Ravenswood Event Center Story
Our unique event spaces were carved out of over 250,000 square feet, once home to the Manz Co., an industrial printing & design complex on Chicago’s Northside. In keeping with its tradition of detail oriented renovation & restoration, Hayes Properties provided the design & construction behind the transformation of each venue. Starting with the simple principle of keeping each space true to its history while still being modern and rich in detail, Hayes Properties partnered with the Ravenswood Event Group have created a special event masterpiece for all of Chicago.
The history of each space is unique and goes back nearly a century. One space was home to a massive boiler system that provided heat & water to an entire city block, another space was the workshop of artisan billboard makers and our largest space was home to massive printing presses as large as military tanks.
In the 1920’s, the Manz Co. a Chicago print advertising powerhouse, built the immense top floor window-scape to provide a workshop tall enough to hand craft advertising billboards in the true light of day. Almost a century later, the once artistic chamber now provides an open canvas for thoroughly modern events.
