Nestled in a beautifully restored building from the 1880s, BRIX on the Fox stands as a testament to the rich heritage of the Illinois Condensing Company, later known as the Borden Condensed Milk Company. Originally serving as a living area for cows, this expansive structure underwent various transformations over the years, changing hands and falling into disrepair. However, thanks to the visionary team at OTTO Engineering, the BRIX on the Fox has been lovingly revitalized to its former glory.

Constructed using the historic "Haeger Yellow Brick," the Borden Condensed Milk Company building carries immense significance. In 2014, OTTO Engineering acquired the property and embarked on an extensive renovation journey. Known for their expertise in restoring dilapidated historic buildings, OTTO meticulously brought the 32,000 sq. ft. structure back to life, meticulously recreating the original façade and interior brickwork.

Interior Renovations and Venue Offerings:

In May 2018, the BRIX on the Fox, Inc. initiated interior renovations, transforming the space into a captivating event venue.
