New, 16 comments

As the Metropolitan Pier and Exposition Authority (McPier) prepares to move the landmark Harriet F. Rees House from its current location to a lot just a block away, the organization that owns and operates McCormick Place is preparing for its next big project: building a new arena. McPier is currently seeking construction contractors for the ambitious project, which is expected to begin January 20, 2015 according to a listing on the bid-monitoring site BidClerk. According to the timeline McPier unveiled in August, the $173 million arena is expected to be completed by February 2017. Once completed, the Pelli Clarke Pelli-designed arena will become the home to DePaul University's athletic program, and will also host other large events.
