Omni Ecosystems

Omni Ecosystems integrates science and design into working landscapes to improve resiliency within the built environment and empower healthier, happier humans. Omni’s mission is to democratize access to natural spaces and engage in bold endeavors that affect meaningful environmental change.
Falling within INVEST South/West’s geographic boundary and sitting directly across from the former Robert Taylor homes site in an Opportunity Zone, Omni’s headquarters is designed to both build local community wealth and help reverse the historic levels of disinvestment and decades of neglect the greater Bronzeville community has experienced.
Omni is committed to utilizing its local presence to support the community and help make Bronzeville a more economically vibrant neighborhood. We have embarked on numerous ventures to see this commitment through. These endeavors are exemplified by the Seed A Lot: Sidewalk Share site activation, our participation in the IIT Youth STEM Expo, the Strides for Peace Race to end Gun Violence, and hosting numerous community organizations in our space, including Chicago Youth Corps, Build Bronzeville and the Renaissance Collaborative.
We have experience and ease in accommodating political assemblies, whether they are intimate or expansive in scale and scope. Our venue has had the honor of accommodating a distinguished array of elected and appointed government leaders. Notably, these have included:
• J. B. Pritzker, Governor of Illinois
• Kimberly du Buclet, Illinois State Representative
• Lamont J. Robinson, Jr., Illinois State Representative
• Brandon Johnson, Mayor of Chicago
• Pat Dowell, Alderman of the 3rd Ward
• Jim Harbin, Deputy Commissioner at City of Chicago
• Kari K. Steele, President of the Metropolitan Water Reclamation District of Greater Chicago

Our award-winning biophilic facility features an ADA accessible green roof and flexible event spaces. Additionally, we can accommodate guests with private meeting rooms and phone booths, as well as gender-neutral restrooms.
