McDonald’s flagship restaurant at Clark and Ontario streets is getting a modern makeover. The fast-food giant unveiled exterior and interior designs for the restaurant Tuesday after the rehabilitation started at the once-iconic Rock 'n’ Roll McDonald’s location. “Chicago, soon to be the home of our new headquarters, is special to our brand and we are proud to partner with our local franchisee on this one-of-a-kind restaurant that takes the McDonald’s dining experience to a whole new level,” said McDonald’s U.S. president Chris Kempczinski.” The nearly 19,000-square-foot restaurant will include "abundant green space with more than 70 trees at the ground level, a vegetated roof space and a floating glass garden of ferns and white birch trees." Visitors also can expect greeters, table service and a "pedestrian-centric space" with outdoor seating and a park area.
