A PROUD HISTORY

From making milk

to making dreams come true

The expansive building was constructed in the 1880s for the Illinois  Condensing Company later renamed the Borden  Condensed  Milk  Company.  The event space of The BRIX was originally a living area for cows.  The building was converted to other uses around 1920 and has had several owners since then.  The exterior and interior fell into disrepair. 

The Borden  Condensed  Milk Company building was constructed using historic  “Haeger  Yellow  Brick” which adds to its significance.  The building was purchased by OTTO Engineering in 2014.  OTTO has had extensive experience returning dilapidated historic buildings to their historic condition.  An extensive renovation to the 32,000 sq. ft. building was completed to the exterior to bring the façade and interior brick to its original appearance.

The  BRIX on the Fox, Inc. began interior renovations in May 2018 with the first wedding held September 2018 in the flagship Two-Sixty.  The Industria, announced in July 2019, is now being constructed as a separate venue in the expansive building and will be available for weddings by January 2020.
