Nike Transforms West Side Church In Chicago Into Basketball Facility – Design You Trust

Nike Transforms West Side Church In Chicago Into Basketball Facility

A former church has gotten a new lease on life – as a basketball facility. The Church of the Epiphany in the 200 block of South Ashland Avenue was built in 1855, but closed and desanctified in 2011 because of dwindling membership. Earlier in 2018, Nike took over the building and turned it into a world-class basketball facility.
