The Church of the Epiphany located in Chicago recently underwent a radical makeover at the hands of Nike. Dating back to 1885, the antique structure has been converted into a state-of-the-art basketball facility, complete with custom floor markings, stained glass windows, modernized lockers, as well as an integrated weight room.

The brand new Chicago Just Do It Headquarters is open to local hoops teams throughout the week with public admittance scheduled on Saturdays and will be used to help further develop the city’s up-and-coming basketball talent. As reported by ABC7 Chicago, former Bulls superstar Scottie Pippen recently dropped by, sharing tips, tricks and invaluable life lessons. To learn more, be sure to visit Nike’s online site.
