The Calumet River Corridor is a unique ecosystem located in the heart of what was once one of the world’s highest concentrations of heavy industry. The river is now being positioned as a key amenity and catalyst to help revitalize South Suburban Chicago communities.
Hitchcock Design Group was engaged by the South Suburban Mayors and Managers Association and the Chicago Southland Economic Development Corporation to create a handbook that illustrates environmentally sustainable design and development best practices. The handbook will promote, guide, and inspire environmentally sustainable industrial, commercial, residential and mixed-use redevelopment. Hitchcock Design Group also created a new logo and visual identity system for the Calumet River Corridor that is used for branding and marketing promotions targeting prospective investors and visitors.
