New McDonald’s Building In Chicago Draws Comparisons To Apple Stores

Fast-food chain McDonald’s has replaced its iconic restaurant in Chicago with a building by Ross Barney Architects that is “unlike any in the company’s portfolio”.

The new outpost opened on 9 August 2018 in the city’s River North district, on the site of the Rock N Roll McDonald’s that served as a flagship for the chain, but was demolished last year. Its replacement – designed by local firm Ross Barney Architects – is a steel and timber structure that boasts a number of sustainable elements, and has been compared to tech giant Apple’s stores by several news outlets.
