Halas Hall

Halas Hall is a building complex in Lake Forest, Illinois, that serves as the Chicago Bears' headquarters. Designed by Peter Rose of Peter Rose + Partners, the building hosts the team's front office, as well as indoor and outdoor practice facilities.[1] The franchise spent $20 million to build the complex in 1997. It is four miles west of the original Halas Hall,[2] which is now used by the Lake Forest College Athletics Department.[3]

In 2013, the Bears announced that Halas Hall will be renovated, which will include an event center, broadcast studio, along with an outdoor patio and dining facility. Additional conference rooms and staff offices will also be added, and the building will expand the parking lot and renovate the entrance to the lobby. The media courtyard will also be relocated; the event center's will feature interactive digital displays, video monitors and memorabilia such as the 1963 NFL Championship Game trophy.[4] Design by Richard Preves & Associates, Architects.
