We didn't mention it here, so in case you missed it: the mall portion of Chicago Place is being turned into offices .
Chicago Place mall is destined to become a cubicle farm.
It will be interesting to see how this is accomplished. The low-impact (and lower cost) way would be to leave the atrium open and have the offices ring it, like the Lloyd's of London headquarters . But there has been talk in the past of decking over the atrium back when a hotel looked like a better way to go. We'll see what happens.
