CHICAGO, IL (June 9, 2016) – FitzGerald Associates Architects, a leading national residential and commercial design firm, announced that award-winning industry veteran Michael Breclaw, AIA, LEED AP, has joined the firm as associate principal.

Breclaw has more than 25 years of experience as a design professional and has led design on a wide variety of projects, including large-scale retail and mixed-use developments, multifamily and student housing, and corporate and governmental/institutional complexes.

Among his significant projects are the mixed-use developments of Uptown Park Ridge in Park Ridge, Ill., and NEWCITY in Chicago’s Lincoln Park neighborhood, both of which have won Urban Land Institute Chicago’s Vision Award. Breclaw also led the design of Motorola’s former campuses in Libertyville and Harvard, Ill.

Further, his deep knowledge of retail, student housing and institutional design will allow us to expand service to our clients as they grow their businesses and explore new design options for their developments.”
