Construction Workers Dig In Around McCormick Place

New, 2 comments

The massive redevelopment of McCormick Place has been in the works for a long time now, but work is finally moving forward on the Marriott Marquis and data center planned for the continent's largest convention center. Before any ground could be moved, the historic Rees House had to be relocated first, but now that it has settled into its new address, the heavy lifting can truly begin. The redevelopment includes a 51-story hotel tower with 1,200 rooms, a data center and a Pelli Clarke Pelli-designed 10,000 seat stadium, which will become the home of DePaul University's athletic program.
