CHICAGO (AP) — Another iconic Chicago skyscraper might be in line for a new name.
The owners of a John Hancock Center is offered a fixing rights for a 47-year-old building to compensate for a due redevelopment of a piazza in front of a Michigan Avenue building.
Stephen Hearn presented his devise to a Magnificent Mile Association, a nonprofit organisation compelling businesses along North Michigan Avenue. It enclosed a digest display where a sponsor’s name could seem in three-foot-high letters nearby a third building of a 100-floor tower.
Hearn pronounced offered a fixing rights is essential to removing a $10 million piazza devise off a ground.
Hearn’s devise isn’t sitting good with some. Ward Miller of Preservation Chicago says changes to a plaza, a building’s masquerade and a name could harm a legacy.
