The iconic Art Deco building that houses the Chicago Board of Trade is about to get a big upgrade: a new rooftop deck. Commercial tenants want amenities and having a rooftop space in the Loop has become almost a standard checklist item that businesses are looking for when shopping around for space. According to GlenStar Properties, the owner of the CBOT Building, the new rooftop space will span 4,300 square feet and will be able to accommodate 150 people. There'll also be some contemporary touches, including a 20 foot water wall and a full bar. Now that the CBOT's trading pits are closed, the famous futures pit could soon become the Loop's next greatest office space.
