He's also opening a Yeezy office here, which should be cool. He's recently been talking about getting into real estate development: https://www.dezeen.com/2018/06/04/ka...ect-instagram/

There could be some cool things brewing...

It is a damn shame that project was not built at designed nor are there plans to build that design. That thing would be a gem.

United Airlines exploring Willis Tower departure
Quote:
By Danny Ecker
Amazon's competition for its second headquarters has elicited Chicago developers' grandest plans, and now one of the city's biggest companies is exploring the possibility of leaving its home for one of them.

With an option to break from its massive lease at Willis Tower more than four years away, Chicago-based United Airlines has had discussions in recent months with developers behind some of the city's largest proposed office projects about a potential new headquarters location, according to sources familiar with the company.
....
Sources say United officials have entertained pitches to move their Willis Tower headquarters and operations center to locations including Tribune Media's 30-acre site along the Chicago River between Grand and Chicago Avenues, where the media company has rolled out its vision to create a mixed-use campus and where the Chicago Tribune's lease for an 854,000 square foot printing plant runs through 2023.

Other sites that could be in the mix were also part of the City of Chicago's official bid for Amazon's HQ2: That includes Lincoln Yards, the 53-acre mixed-use campus that developer Sterling Bay has proposed along the Chicago River between Lincoln Park and Bucktown, as well as a vacant, 62-acre South Branch site where developer Related Midwest wants to build a mixed-use campus it has called the 78.

"We are always looking at what is in the marketplace, but don't have any plans to make an announcement," said a United spokeswoman.

Many developers call it a long shot for United to leave Willis Tower because the building's owner, New York-based private equity behemoth Blackstone Group, will take any necessary step to keep it. Blackstone, which paid $1.3 billion for the 110-story building in 2015 and has since borrowed $1.3 billion against the property to finance a $668 million renovation, will need to secure its biggest revenue-generating tenant if it wants to sell the building after it completes its overhaul. The renovation, which is designed to modernize the 45-year-old tower to keep pace with competition, is slated to be done in 2022.

I'd love to see a mega-development kick off in this city. It would suck to see 18 floors of the Sears Tower being vacant, but great to see HQ relocations further from the Loop
