YOUR LIFE - YOUR STYLE
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, a separate venue in the expansive building, was announced in July 2019 and hosted its first wedding on NYE 2019.
