Development Update: DePaul B-Ball

New, 5 comments

DePaul University is continuing to shop potential arena sites for Blue Demons basketball, after reportedly passing on the United Center. A source tells The Tribune that DePaul "intends to pursue a public building at McCormick Place." Ten years of free rent and 100% of ticket revenue weren't enough incentive, apparently. While DePaul has no land to work with at the moment, two sizable adjoining parcels at Cermak & Indiana—the foreclosed former holdings of developers Pam Gleichman and Karl Norberg—are headed to auction. It's about to get wild, especially if DePaul arrives hat-in-hand. [Trib, previously]
