Motorola Mobility Headquarters

From it’s original location on a suburban business campus in Illinois, Motorola Mobility partnered with Gensler to lead the programming, design and construction of its new headquarters located at the historic Merchandise Mart in downtown Chicago. Working closely with Motorola, Gensler and CD+M created a space that integrates interior architecture with the latest thinking in technology, strategic workplace design, lighting controls and sustainable design.

The project team achieved a rare LEED Platinum Certification by carrying out practical and measurable strategies and accomplishing creative solutions reaching high performance throughout the five key areas of human environmental health: sustainable site selection, water efficiency, optimized energy performance, material and resource usage and indoor environmental quality. 

The new 600,000-square-foot workspace includes open, collaborative office spaces, an outdoor terrace, lab benching and production line equipment and several amenity spaces, including food service, a conference center and customer service center.
