Paseo Boricua Arts Building

The Paseo Boricua Arts Building reimagines seven buildings on Chicago’s Division Street as a mixed-use cultural facility developed by the Puerto Rican Cultural Center of Chicago (PRCC). The renovated storefronts share a common architectural language of full height glazing, punctuated with bright colors to announce the arts-related programming to the local community. A 99-seat house for The Urban Theater Company, a Wine and Spirits Bar, and the Paseo Boricua Art Gallery will occupy the ground floor spaces, with the upper floors reconfigured as 15 live/work residences for artists and their families.
