McDonald’s Gateway to Chicago

This impressive retail facility represents the "super sizing" of the original McDonalds store located in Des Plaines, IL. It was designed to commemorate and celebrate the 50 year anniversary of the McDonalds Corporation. Huge outward-sloping glass walls with the same inclination as the original store were desired. Novum engineering designed 24' long, laminated glass fins to support the horizontally-run, oversized point supported glass panels.
