Gov. Bruce Rauner on Tuesday announced plans to sell the aging James R. Thompson Center in the Loop.

The 17-story building was designed by Helmut Jahn and opened in 1985 well over expected cost. It has proven costly and inefficient to maintain.

Rauner made the announcement during a late morning news conference inside the glass-walled government building at the corner of Clark and Randolph streets, according to an aide. The plan would require legislative approval.
